Bonorong is a Sanctuary for wildlife run by a passionate team of like-minded people. We're a social enterprise: a little business with a big heart. Just 30 minutes north of Hobart's CBD, we are home to many animals, including wombats, koalas, Tasmanian devils, birds, quolls and more. We also have free-roaming Forester kangaroos who are always keen for a good scratch on the chest and some gentle hand feeding (roo food included with entry). A visit to Bonorong is not complete without joining one of our daily guided tours. These tours are free with entry and give you the opportunity to meet some of our most popular locals: the wombats, devils and koalas. You will hear little-known facts and stories of the wildlife in our care. Tour groups, school groups and after-school groups can all be catered for with private tours and more. We have a Food Hut onsite, making it a great stop for lunch with 100% plant-based meals. Bonorong is easily accessible by car, with free parking onsite.
