Bonorong's Animal Encounters

Spend 10 minutes up close with one of our friendly critters!

 

Morning

Afternoon

A minimum of 2 participants or the equivalent in fees
is required for the encounter to proceed.

**Did you know?

Echidnas have torpor cycles where they go in to semi-hibernation. While this is generally in autumn and winter, it can also occur on colder than average days.

For this reason we cannot guarantee your encounter will go ahead until you arrive.

If the echindas are not active, we will happily offer you an encounter with a different animal or provide a full refund.
