What you need to know

Pay a visit to Tasmania's ever-popular Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary during the day with a general admission ticket and get up close to all of the furry animal favourites that call the park home. From koalas and kangaroos to Tasmanian Devils, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is a haven for recovering and orphaned animals of all shapes and sizes in the region. This great sanctuary isn't quite a wildlife park however it is always a hit with the kids as they'll be able to have a face-to-face, fun and educational encounter with native Aussie wildlife as the famously friendly volunteer keepers and guides aim to both inform and entertain guests.

With one of the largest mobs of free-ranging kangaroos in Australia, as well as a number of species that are now extinct in all other parts of Australian except Tasmania, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary provides one of the most personal, intimate and enjoyable animal-oriented days out in the state. In addition to exploring the park on your own, you can also take part in one of the guided tours throughout the day. There are two times a day to choose from; 11:30am, 2pm and 3:30pm, with each running for 45-minutes and providing a great amount of fun and information for everyone to enjoy. It's easily reachable from Hobart and ideal for a day trip, so grab your tickets online here today!
