  • I visited the park with a tour from Hobart. It was very interesting because the animals are very well taken care of and there is great variety. Unfortunately, that day the heat and low humidity were absurd (go prepared with water and protection for the Sun) and some animals were hiding. But it's worth it! Upon arriving, we received a packet of dog food, and we were able to feed the kangaroos.

  • Bonorong is a true wildlife sanctuary - dedicated to rehabilitating injured and threatened native animals. The Tasmanian Devils here (along with other sites around the country) represent a "back-up" population of animals free of the facial tumour disease. The staff here are friendly, approachable and very knowledgeable. Please support this worthwhile cause! Just amazing!
  • The fact it is a Wildlife Sanctuary and not just a zoo is what I Love.... that they are wildlife carers not keepers.... and that they have 3 R's to strive for.... Rescue. Rehabilitate. Release. if possible. ..... Wonderful.
  • Wonderful day out. The animals are all very well cared for and the location was stunning. Great way to see Tasmanian devils near Hobart. I recommend paying a little bit extra for a wildlife experience - we were able to interact with a baby wombat.
  • Wonderful sanctuary and I totally enjoyed my time there. Santuary has wombats, koalas, tasmania devils and kangaroos. Staff were very friendly and informative. Entrance fee includes a packet of kangaroo food. Had so much fun feeding the kangaroos!
  • Amazing, my favourite place In Tassie well worth the a visit. Never seen friendlier kangaroo's (and you can feed them!) or more relaxed Tassie devils, If you ever go to Hobart, put that on your agenda.
