Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

A visit to Bonorong offers a chance to come closer than ever to something wild and fragile; feed wallabies, visit the Tasmanian Devils or even have a Wombat Encounter! Proceeds fund their 24 hr Animal Hospital. Family passes start at $85.00

Bonorong is a Sanctuary for wildlife run by a passionate team of like-minded people. A social enterprise: a little business with a biiiig heart. The skills and funds generated through the Sanctuary allow the team to proactively address problems in our surrounding environment and communities.

A visit to Bonorong is a chance to come closer than ever to something wild and fragile. You’ll come face to face with animals that went extinct long ago in other parts of Australia — the same animals we’re working hard to protect now.

By walking through their old wooden gate you’ll become part of something special – everything they do, they do with your help. A special message from Bonorong: "from all of us here at Bonorong (four feet, two feet and no feet), we look forward to seeing you soon!"

The following experiences are available:

  • General Entry. Entry fees directly fund the running of Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, as well as the operation of all of their conservation programs.
