Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary


Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is a sanctuary for injured and orphaned animals in Tasmania.

It was great seeing a Tasmanian devil. That felt like a once in a lifetime experience especially considering that they face extinction due to a contagious cancer.

I’ve seen kangaroos at Bundoora Park and the Werribee Zoo, but Bonorong takes the cake. After we spent about ten minutes feeding two adorable kangaroos through a fence, when we stood up to walk away, they came through the fence and followed us along the trail for a while. As we came around the bend, we saw dozens of kangaroos laying about lazily in the sun. They roam freely at Bonorong.
