cancellation policy

You can cancel these tickets up to 48 hours before the experience begins and get a full refund.

When you visit Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, you are actually entering Tasmania’s largest 24/7 Wildlife Rescue Service. From koalas and kangaroos to Tasmanian devils, wombats, and quolls, this is a haven for recovering and orphaned animals of all shapes and sizes. The experience is bound to melt your heart as you get to have face-to-face, fun, and educational encounters with native Aussie wildlife. Needless to say, it is a big hit with the kids!

Many animals, including large mobs of free-ranging kangaroos, as well as species that are now going extinct in parts of Australia other than Tasmania, call the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary their home. Apart from exploring the sanctuary on your own, make use of the daily guided tours. There are four to choose from (10:30 AM, 11:30 AM, 1:30 PM, and 3:30 PM), each running for 45 minutes. The friendly keepers will offer you tons of fun information and stories about the animals.

Amazing care shown for the animals and very knowledgeable keepers. Great to know your entrance fee goes to supporting rescue services.

The kids loved feeding the kangaroos and the guided tour was great to learn about the injured animal they housed before they are sent back in the wild.

It was hard to find the wombats because the long pen with Winnie wasn't labelled and it didn't come out until we were just about to give up looking for it and we heard there was another wombat further down somewhere but didn't see any signage down near the bootom of the larger kangaroo area

My husband & I took our 5yo nephew to Bonorong for his birthday. We live near Hobart but hadn't been there in a couple of years & were pleasantly surprised to see how much they've expanded the sanctuary. Some of the paths on outer areas are quite uneven & my nephew tripped & nearly fell (my husband caught him), so tread carefully! Love the new kangaroo enclosure, as well. We had to dodge several muddy patches to get to them, but it was worth it. I was also quite happy to see that their (tiny yet very capable) cafe stand is now 100% plant-based. Their hot chips were great & the 'lam' korma was delicious! Plus, tasty coffee. We all had a wonderful, leisurely time, all the animals look happy & well cared for, & I highly recommend a visit to everyone!
