Animals Australia

We are providing support to expert wildlife vets to travel to fire-devastated areas – where they are helping any surviving animals, and ensuring local wildlife carers have the support and resources they need. We are also channelling much-needed funds directly to groups, vets and individuals helping animals in the hardest hit regions. We will also be assisting with the longer-term needs of affected wildlife, who have lost their habitats and their food source.

Ways to donate!

In addition to the event for the entirety of the weekend (22 – 23 February) our visitor donation boxes will be donated straight to the fundraiser.

We also will have Tap Point $4 donation spot in the Engine Room for the weekend.

During the event card donations of any amount can also be taken at the Reception desk.
