Nangak Tamboree (nan-nyack tam-bor-ee) means respecting, sharing and looking after the waterway in Woiwurrung language of the Wurundjeri people.

The Nangak Tamboree Wildlife Sanctuary was created in 1967 as a project in the restoration and management of indigenous flora and fauna. It has now evolved to now be a high biodiversity node within the Nangak Tamboree Eco-Corridor. This eco-corridor connects the Sanctuary from the Gresswell Habitat Link and Gresswell Forest to our north, through the La Trobe University Bundoora campus to Darebin Creek in the south. 

This regenerated bushland environment is used for conservation, education and research activities that support the learning and teaching objectives of La Trobe University and it's surrounding schools. We also provide an array of community events and volunteering opportunities for those interested in the conservation of indigenous flora and fauna at the Wildlife Sanctuary.
