Charleville Bilby Experience

Charleville's must do attraction

CLOSED until further notice due to COVID-19 restrictions. We apologise for any inconvenience.


The Charleville Bilby Experience is a centre dedicated to bilbies. During our shows you will not only see bilbies and learn about them, but in our Up Close and Personal Tour at 9am (Mon-Sat) you have a unique opportunity to touch a bilby. Guides will introduce you to our bilbies and discuss the fascinating world of bilbies. You will also hear first hand what Save the Bilby Fund are doing to save this environmental engineering marvel from extinction.

By visiting the Charleville Bilby Experience and booking into one of our experiences you are helping to save the bilbies as all of the proceeds from the tours and souvenirs go directly to the vital work we do in saving them.

Come visit us, and meet and enjoy a wildlife experience that is close to our hearts and will become close to yours as well.

A word from our visitors

This was our main reason for stopping in Charleville. I had heard about the Bilby centre and Bilby man on TV. It did not dissapoint - the centre is professionally displayed, staff is very knowledgeable and passionate. And of course seeing the Bilbies is the highlight, very active and cute. Only regret is we couldn't also do the bilby patting the next day! Maybe next time. Keep up the great work.

Was a great informative day about the Bilbies. You get to see them up close and pet one. Just a fun day for families.

We did the up close encounter tour whilst in Charleville! It was wonderful! The staff were very knowledgeable and it was so interesting to hear what’s being done to save these cute mammals! We loved patting these soft little creatures and watching them run around in their environment. The displays are very informative. Highly recommend supporting this great organisation if you visit Charleville.

What a highlight - getting to pat a bilby. The Bilby Experience is a great attraction and such a good way to educate people about this beautiful little, adaptable and super cute critter. Easy to book online.

We did a morning tour - the young lady who looked after us was great - knew a lot and was very good at getting us involved. We got to pat a bilby and came away feeling we knew about them and their plight.
