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.

The Feeding Frenzy tour is a group feeding tour with your own personal guide. Group sizes are kept to a maximum of eight people to ensure every participant has plenty of opportunity to interact with the critters.You’ll get up close to as many different animals as possible in two and a half hours and you’ll be supporting an incredible cause! (If we do say so ourselves). The Feeding Frenzy may include: - Feeding the wombats their daily snacks. - Giving the cockatoos their (sometimes) wriggly treats! - Feeding the Tassie devils their snacks. - Meeting our two unique species of quoll and spotting their differences. - Feeding fresh eucalyptus to the koalas whilst stroking their thick, woolly fur. - Hand-feeding the tawny frogmouth birds and watching them swallow their food whole. - Spotting the secretive and little known Tasmanian bettongs in their grassy nests. - Seeing the sweet-toothed sugar gliders come out for their dessert, and more!
