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.
