WHO WE ARE
Orphan Wombat Care
Here at Goongerah Wombat Orphanage we aim to care for orphaned, sick and injured wombats for a complete and successful release back into the wild. Most of the orphans that come into care have lost their mother's due to vehicle collisions. We aim to replicate the lifestyle they would have received with their mother as much as possible to promote a successful release back into their natural habitat.
Goongerah is nestled between mountains in Far East Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. This remote town is amongst national parks and rainforests, being home to many species of Australian wildlife.
