  • 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!
  • Brilliant place. It is so good to see people workings towards helping our environment and native animals. Well done and well worth the visit.
  • Beautiful little sanctuary with healthy and happy looking rescued animals. The staff are very caring and knowledgable.
  • 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.
  • 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.
