Description:


Bonorong Park was established in 1981 as a sanctuary for injured and orphaned wildlife. Owner, 26 year old Greg Irons, has had a lifetime passion for animal rehabilitation and releasing animals back into the wild. When seven years old and first visiting Bonorong Wildlife Park he stated to his mother that he would own Bonorong one day and that has now become a reality. Greg believes in grass roots education and regularly undertakes talks at junior and secondary schools. He has hand raised numerous species from Tasmanian Devils and Eastern Quolls to Tawny Frogmouths and Eastern-Barred Bandicoots. He believes that if people first gain a greater understanding of the animals this can result in a passion for helping them. Greg has turned Bonorong into a sanctuary that focuses on education, rehabilitation and release of native wildlife. Running over 1000 tours a year the staff at Bonorong are all very experienced in interpretation and wildlife husbandry.
