    The sanctuary is located in the South-West of Sydney, approximately 1 hour from Sydney airport along the M5, 30 minutes from Campbelltown, 45 minutes from Wollongong and a few minutes from both Tahmoor and Bargo.
    Make a booking, come and have a look around and meet the dingoes! We are open to the public from 10am – 2pm 7 days a week.


    Summer in Bargo – some days are just too hot!

    When the temperature hits 40° it’s just too hot for the dingoes. So for that reason we will be closed to the public on very hot days. Watch this space for specific dates.

    On the not so hot days we are open every day!

    Amazing experience with option of personal encounter. Can’t recommended enough. All volunteers and sponsorship reliant.


    A great opportunity to learn more about the dingoes.

    I heard about the Dingo Sanctuary quite by chance while staying in Tahmoor recently. The Dingo Sanctuary conducts tours by appointment only at 10 am, 12 midday and 2 pm. I ‘phoned the contact number given, and booked myself in. One of the volunteers who works there, Spencer, met me at the gate and conducted the tour. I was delighted to see so many dingoes, and hearing them howl was quite an eerie experience. Spencer and the other volunteers who work at the Dingo Sanctuary are knowledgeable about the dingoes, their needs, and habits. The Dingo Sanctuary also has a very successful breeding program, and provides pups to other zoos.

    I also got to handfeed one of the dingoes!

    The Dingo Sanctuary is well worth visiting, and supporting.


    Absolutely amazing very nice staff, kids loved it but think us adults loved it more 😂


    Great for little kids. However it is relatively small.


    Amazing hands on experience. Highly recommended for all. The volunteers are amazing and give you great information on the dingos history. The explain about all dingos at the sanctuary and types of dingoes. The hands on experience was amazing and recommended. So glad we found this place.


    From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The staff could not do enough for us and answered any and all questions. We had a group booking and had lunch there which was very well done, no one left hungry. Could not praise enough the fantastic experience which was had by everyone.


    Great place, very welcoming, very informative. Heaps of dingoes to see.


    Beautiful place run by caring and informative volunteers. Entrance fees very cheap and affordable. Highlight is being able to actually pat a dingo. Attached to sanctuary is a wildlife park with emus, wallabies and kangaroos. Awesome family outing. Loved it.


    Great for kids, lots of info, only a short tour and run by volunteers who are doing a great job! Well worth the admission


    Highly recommended- you’ll learn lots and it’s run by lovely people who are passionate about their beautiful dingoes.

    WOW! A truly beautiful & personal experience! We are local & had never visited Bargo Dingo Sanctuary. So that all changed after finding out my cousins visiting from the UK & wanted to give them a unique experience, that is entirely what they got. You need to book your visit, because it is volunteer run & the gate is locked for obvious reasons. To be personally guided through the Sanctuary & be told stories about each of the dingoes & they are friendly running up to greet you & check you out, some aren’t, but that’s ok, none are threatening to visitors at all, more us to them. Guy you are awesome, & so laid back, it was an amazing experience for us all today, I think we all learnt so much & the photo opportunities for our family & getting to cuddle a dingo (because he didn’t mind that at all) priceless, they all howled knowing one was out & on a leash & we all enjoyed that, including our Dingo friend.

    We were so impressed, peaceful & enclosures huge, incredibly clean & so loved & well looked after. I’m just repeating others comments here others made today 🙂

    Thanks so much for spending the time with us so close to feeding time, it didn’t go unnoticed how much work the volunteers have to do & the change in the dingoes’ confidence & demeanour when there is a familiar carer & basically loved member of their ‘pack’ around to guide us around when you had to attend to something & we waited a few minutes. Just thought you should know, it didn’t go unnoticed by me with canine behaviour.

    We just had the best day. Highly recommended & these guys gave up their Easter Long weekend for people like us & their love of what they do. So thank you Guy & all the volunteers.


    Well done! This sanctuary is completely run by volunteers and has been here for 30 years with around 30 Dingos who are very well looked after and loved by their handlers. A guide takes tours for a walk and talk past the enclosures for around 1/2 hr and if you want at the end of the tour you can have a ENCOUNTER with one of these lovable creatures. A small donation, well worth it. Just love this place can’t wait to go back. This sanctuary is a little hard to find and is posted on the same signpost as the nursery next door so keep an eye out for the multiple signs.


    My visit to the dingo sanctuary at bargo. It was a awesome time to see the Dingoes and actually have a personal encounter with a Dingo, once in a liftetime thing to do. No where else can you have that opportunity. It is a calm and peaceful place, we took our lunch and sat under the trees and listened to the Dingoes talk to each other, the fees are so reasonable and all monies goes to the Dingo welfare….Rosemary


    Beautiful reserve very educational


    No script so depending on who you get need to ask lots of questions to get informative talk. Gardens are fairly tall so small children may need a lot of help to see. Dingoes are neat and the volunteers are passionate.


    Very misunderstood animals. Great to learn about and experience. Animals are well cared for and staff are excellent. If your looking for an unconventional family outing i highly recommend.


    If your wanting to get up close and personal with dingos this is the place. You have to make a booking ($25 for a family but that helps for the upkeep) and one of the volunteers takes you around and they are very informative and afterwards you can have an encounter with a dingo.
