Bunny Information

Rabbits are prey animals and frighten easily, they need specialist care from attentive and responsible adult  owners. Responsible ownership requires an understanding of your rabbit’s basic health needs.  Rabbits can suffer from health conditions that are unique to their species. Not all vets specialise in rabbit health, so it is important to find a bunny savvy vet or a vet that is willing to liaise with a bunny savvy vet.

Parking on the property is limited. We have a very steep driveway with limited turning space.

If you are worried about our steep driveway, please park on the Mt Dandenong Tourist Rd near the Mt Dandenong Hotel, walk past the Vet, turn into Illoura St then left into Stanley St.  Our property is on the left, only a 5 minute walk.

PLEASE NOTE: There is NO public parking in Stanley St.  Please DO NOT park in resident's driveways or in front of their homes, as this disrupts the neighbors access and parking for their family/visitors.
