Experiences at Bonorong

Now you’ve found us, it’s time to decide what you’d like to do: join one of our free daily tours,
amble around the Sanctuary at your own pace, or for an extra-special treat,
book one of your behind-the-scenes experiences. 

 

Sanctuary ADMISSION

Your entry fees directly fund the running of Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, as well as the operation of all of our conservation programs.

You'll be able to visit our Sanctuary for the day, see our animals, join one of the daily tours and more.

Entry includes a free bag of kangaroo food, and access to our daily tours. Our roos roam free within the Sanctuary and are always keen for a good scratch on the chest and gentle hand feeding.


Daily Tours

Full public tours are included in your entry fee and take place every day at 11:30am, 2:00pm and 3.30pm and run for approximately 45 minutes. A 15-minute session focusing on the Tasmanian devils is repeated at 10am every day (this session is included in the 45 minute tours).

All public tours allow visitors to see the Tassie devil eat a snack, learn about their quirky personalities as well as some of the threats they face and the efforts to help protect them.

Full tours also include the opportunity to meet our wombat and koala and gently feel their fur (if they are feeling up for it).

One of our knowledgeable keepers will introduce you to some of Bonorong’s favourite species and share with you their passion and concern for Tasmanian wildlife.

Not only do we aim to entertain you, we are committed that you will leave Bonorong with the tools to help conserve Tasmania’s unique wildlife.

What can you do to reduce roadkill? Or help the Tassie devil in its fight against disease? Visitors and Tasmanians alike can play their part in looking after our wonderful creatures. 

Prefer to self-guide? Allow an absolute minimum of an hour to wander around the Sanctuary.
