My wife and I really loved visiting Tasmania and this wildlife sanctuary! First off, the people/staff were really nice and welcoming and set great expectations about everything the admission price includes. We also didn’t realize how many kangaroos the property has or how much interaction we’d have with them, but we were blown away! To us, it was way better than the Taronga Zoo in Sydney. In addition to all that, they are the only wildlife sanctuary in Hobart and saved over 17,000 wild animals last year! (Apparently, animals getting hit by cars happens often in Tasmania.) They offer free daily tours where you get to walk around with a knowledgeable staff member and learn about Tassie Devils (of course), wombats (which are really adorable), echidnas (which look like cute little porcupines) and other local animals. They offer a little snack area for lunch as well. What a cool, important place! Will definitely come back if we ever return to Hobart! If you love learning about animals and seeing kangaroos, wombats and devils up close, go there! By the way, for anyone contemplating how to get there without booking a tour or private shuttle, we took an Uber from the Cambridge/airport area for around $58 AUD each way and that included up to 4 passengers. We did have a little trouble getting an Uber from the Sanctuary, but we just walked from there to the nearby town of Brighton (which is about a 20-30-minute walk) and we where able to order an Uber from there back to Cambridge.

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.

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.
