What is there to do?

Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary really is a special place for the animals of Tasmania. It's a place where the animals are really cared for, so you know they're happy, and they also offer amazing experiences for kids who can come closer than ever to them!

The main purpose of the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is to care for animals. Did you know they operate the state's ONLY 24 hour wildlife rescue service? That means that whenever there is an animal that is hurt or in trouble, no matter what time of the day - they will be there for it!

Then, the sanctuary heal and care for these animals, until they can be safely released back in to the wild. It's visitors like you that allow them to keep doing it!

Want to hear something really special about this sanctuary? You might actually come across an animal that is extinct everywhere else in the world, except for here! Each animal has a story to tell, and so kids will really love learning about the animals, and their individual stories. It's a great learning experience for kids to understand why it's so important to look after our animals.

Come face to face with devils, quolls, wombats, possums, and even snakes! Every time you visit, you help them get these animals off the endangered species lists. 

Want to learn more about the animals? Then join one of their FREE wildlife tours! These 45 minute tours allow you a closer insight into the animals - you might even be able to get the wombats and koalas a pat!
