  • A wonderful experience. The sanctuary had plenty of animals from across Australia, who were all well looked after and quite active. Appreciated the focus on Australian animals, and the hospital looking after injured wildlife. We did the animal feeding experience with a wonderful guide who was passionate about it, ended up going for much longer than advertised so we could see everything and experience as much as we could. The kids loved it too, didn't even notice the time flying by. Had a bite to eat too, the red curry at the cafe was delicious. A thoroughly enjoyable experience for the whole family.
  • I've been to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary probable 3-4 times this year. Whenever extended family comes over for a holiday from Canada, we always ensure that Bonorong is on the list of places to see. My step-son loves feeding the kangaroos and the season pass is definitely worth the investment if you plan on going more than once. My wife and I add a season pass to Bonorong now for our 18-month old daughter. It's awesome value if you plant on going more than once and my daughter goes every few weeks to see the kangaroos and birds. It's not very often that you can get up close and personal with out native animals.
  • We attended the night tour at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and had the beat time. Our passionate tour guide was informative, welcoming and funny. They even stayed back late to give us the best possible experience. We loved getting to make new furry friends, and even cuddle some. Not to mention, the work that the sanctuary does to protect animals all over Tassie is admirable. Would highly recommend a visit.
  • DON’T EVEN HESITATE. JUST BOOK IT. One of the best experiences we’ve ever had in Tassie (and we live here). If you love animals, don’t even think about it. It’s worth every penny. Do the night feeding tour with Robyn and you’ll have so much fun! Definitely bringing all our guests here from now on. 💯
  • Fantastic sanctuary. You can get up close and personal with the animals. Free ranging kangaroos. Lovely food hut. Very knowledgeable staff. All your entry money goes to care of the animals as Bonorong has no government funding.
