Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions coming soon


I am working to get our FAQs up as quickly as I can. Thank you for your patience.




Can I bring my dog to visit the Sanctuary?


Please don't. This is a safe space for the deer. We often have young deer roaming in the public area, as well as the chickens and other birds. Unfamiliar dogs can upset them. If you do bring your dog, you may be asked to leave.




Are you open today/tomorrow/school holidays?


We are open every weekend. The only reasons we would not be open are:

  • the weather is too bad/unsafe;
  • we are in COVID lockdown (we are in the Moreton Bay LGA, which usually locks down with Greater Brisbane);
  • we have a private event on, such as a wedding or party;
  • OR I am sick and unable to function to open to the public. I love sharing our place with everybody, but it is just me here and no one to take over if I am unwell.
In all of these cases, I will have updates and announcements on social media, so if you can follow us there, you will be on top of all our news! Facebook Instagram We are happy to open up on weekdays too, and usually open a few extra days over the school holidays, but I have four young kids of my own and am often running around with them. That is why weekday visits must be by appointment, and hopefully at least a day ahead. That way I can work around you and ensure that I am here to let you in when you arrive! School holiday opening days will be announced on social media as well.
