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.

Full Itinerary:


Valid for 01APR21-31MAR23:

The Bonorong Night Tour is a group feeding tour with a guide just for your group. Group sizes are kept small to ensure every participant has plenty of opportunity to interact with the critters. You will enter our animals’ world and experience hand-feeding weird and wonderful creatures like Eastern quolls, tawny frogmouths and sugar gliders. You will also help give the Tassie devils their dinner. In fact, you are going to help feed almost all of the animals. First it’s dinner time for the daylight dwellers and then the nocturnal animals get their breakfast. A special highlight is meeting the mob of friendly Forester kangaroos. You are also going to meet some incredible survivors as many of our animals are recovering from injury or are orphans. Will show you how you are helping Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary get them back into the wild. It’s going to be a journey of incredible (and often very moving) fun.
