A residence and dedicated wildlife sanctuary used for wildlife rehabilitation and education


Rebecca, Matthew, Matilda and Wilson Wild are the owners of Where the Wild Things Are, a property located approximately 65km southeast of Kingaroy. The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary used for wildlife rehabilitation and education.  It is their intent to continue allowing the bush to regrow without interference, while continuing to rehabilitate and release local native species on Where the Wild Things Are.

The sanctuary covers 2 hectares made up of and surrounded by dry eucalypt forest, with some previously cleared areas of land which are being revegetated.  Where the Wild Things Are features a varied assortment of vegetation typical to dry eucalypt forests, with all regrowth being natural.

Examples of wildlife species known to be found on the sanctuary include red-necked wallabies (Macropus rufogriseus), black-striped wallabies (Macropus dorsalis), greater gliders (Petauroides volans) and other smaller glider species, brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) and an extremely varied assortment of birds such as superb fairy wrens (Malurus cyaneus) and the occasional red-tailed black cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus banksii). Furthermore, there have been sightings of ringtail possums (Pseudocheirus peregrinus), golden brushtail possums and koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) on neighbouring properties.
