    It was an amazing day! Very informative and interesting history provided by our tour guide, Jarrod. He spoke clearly and did a very good job in looking after his group.

  • Hobart: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary Guided Night Tour

    2. Hobart: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary Guided Night Tour

    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 the animals’ world and experience hand-feeding weird and wonderful creatures like Eastern quolls, tawny frogmouths and sugar gliders. You will also be able to help your guide feed the Tassie devils their dinner! In fact, you are going to help feed almost all of the animals in the sanctuary. 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 the animals are recovering from injury or are orphans. Your guide will show you how you are helping to get the animals back into the wild.

    A truly excellent experience! The guide was very knowledable and was amazing to get up and personal with some of the coolest animals that Aus has to offer! 10/10 would recommend to anyone wanting an intimate and hands on experience with local wildlife.
