Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is located at Brighton, a 30-minute drive north of Hobart.
The Sanctuary boasts wombats, koalas, birds, quolls and many amazing natives including the Tasmanian devils which are active during the day so they can be viewed at any time. We have over 80 free-roaming kangaroos that you can hand-feed with complimentary kangaroo food given to you on entry and they love a scratch under the chin!
We offer a very hands-on experience, allowing you to view and share special moments with Australia's unique wildlife. Your entry will also help continue the work with education, conservation and rehabilitation of Tasmania's threatened wildlife. Bonorong's dedicated volunteers proudly run Tasmania's only 24 hour wildlife rescue service.
Be sure to time your visit with one of our daily guided tours, run at 1130 and 1400. You will hear little-known facts about the wildlife and stories of orphaned animals in our care. Tours include seeing the devils devour a snack and pats/close-up photos of the wombat and koalas.
View our website for details of our ultimate up-close wildlife experiences: the Feeding Frenzy or Personal Night Tour which are exclusive tours guided by our friendly and knowledgeable keepers.
Opening Times: Daily 0900 - 1700. Please contact us for opening times on Christmas Day.
We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
