  • We had an excellent private tour with Sonia. Her expertise and knowledge was awesome. My son was very impressed, as was I, with all that the sanctuary does to help and rehabilitate animals. It was a superb and moving experience. We'll definitely support you any way we can. Well done on the fabulous way you care for native wildlife. Also great fun to get up close to some of our favourites!
  • We attended the night tour at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and had the beat time. Our passionate tour guide was informative, welcoming and funny. They even stayed back late to give us the best possible experience. We loved getting to make new furry friends, and even cuddle some. Not to mention, the work that the sanctuary does to protect animals all over Tassie is admirable. Would highly recommend a visit.
