Welcome to Dingo Sanctuary Bargo

The Sanctuary is a not-for-profit all Australian charity (registered since 1976) dedicated to keeping and breeding up to 32 Australian Native Dingoes as a pure species.

Why are we a breeding program? Without your and our help, our children and grandchildren are unlikely to see a pure Dingo. We responsibly breed pure Dingoes for other registered Wildlife Parks, Zoos or similar on a per order basis. Here at Dingo Sanctuary Bargo, all visitors, enthusiasts, schools and groups are encouraged to visit, interact with, and learn about the true Australian dog and how they benefit our ever threatened ecosystem.

Our friendly Dingo Guides are eager to welcome you. So what are you waiting for? Grab a ticket and come see us!

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.

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.

Beautiful reserve very educational

Fantastic! Kristy-Lea took us around

Fantastic! Kristy-Lea took us around and we also met her mum, Lyn. It was an eye-opening experience and Kristy’s knowledge knew no bounds. She answered all our (very numerous) questions and her interaction with the dingos was heart warming. I would thoroughly recommend the experience to anyone who cares about animals, especially our native dingos.

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.

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.

Hayden

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

Amanda

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.

Matthew

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.

Rosemary

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

Reymon

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.

Colleen & Fred

There at the weekend and had a great time, the Dingo’s are beautiful and the breakfast was fantastic.
thanks again

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.

Ranan

Great for little kids. However it is relatively small.
