Who we are
​​Wombat Awareness Organisation is a non-profit organisation specialising in the rescue, rehabilitation and advocation of the Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat. We aim to develop strategies to keep the wild population healthy, safe and free!
 
We are proudly the only free range, cage free wombat sanctuary!
 
We are independently funded relying solely on donations and run entirely by volunteers who have dedicated their life to the wombat.
 
 
 
Our philosophy
We believe in kindness and compassion and that every individual is valuable. Living with this philospohy has led us to pave the way in understanding wombats and developing alternatives to current management practices.
 
We now live freely under the stars with the most amazing animal - the Wombat!
 
WAO IS LICENSED TO ACCEPT WOMBATS FROM ALL OVER AUSTRALIA!
IF YOU HAVE A WOMBAT IN NEED OF SPECIALIST, PERMANENT CARE IN OUR FREE RANGE WOMBAT SOCIAL SANCTUARY, PLEASE CONTACT US!
