Welcome to the Chidlow Marsupial Hospital Website
This website has been created to provide wildlife carers with information on the treatment and care of kangaroos and other marsupials.
The information is based on the knowledge and experience of Liz Appelt, a qualified veterinary nurse, wildlife presenter, lecturer in marsupial care and wildlife carer for over 30 years.
If you have any wildlife problems not covered by this website, you can contact Liz on (08) 9572 4165 or email her here
The Hospital is a private residence, however tours of the Hospital can be arranged by appointment. A tour of the Hospital is a great way to meet some of our native animals up close and personal.
Our thanks to Portman Limited (now Cliffs Natural Resources) for their generosity in funding this website. Also thanks to our major sponsor, the Mundaring Community Bank and the many other sponsors, donors and organizations that have supported the Hospital over the years.
The Hospital doesn't charge for its services and relies on donations and sponsorship to cover its costs. If you'd like to help out, you can send a donation to the following Bendigo Bank account:
Account Title: Chidlow Marsupial Hospital Inc
BSB No.: 633-108
Account No.: 122230972
Alternatively please ring (08) 9572 4165 for other options.
A few dollars may not mean much to you, but it means a lot to us and our native animals.
