Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary at Brighton started as a sanctuary for orphaned and injured wildlife. Now you can visit with the many native animals there.
The park has a range of day, group and night tours.
Bonorong has a focus on native animals, many of which are unique to Tasmania, and some of which are endangered in the wild.
Among the unique Tasmanian marsupials are the Tasmanian Devil, the Eastern Quoll, the Tasmanian Pademelon and the shy Tasmanian Bettong.
Other animals in the sanctuary include golden possums, potoroos and emus, the brilliant spotted-tailed quolls, wombats, echidnas and kangaroos.
Day tours are run at 11.30am and 2pm each day and take aproximately 45 minutes. The guides provide a wealth of information on the animals and provide an opportunity to see them being fed and to get some up close photos and pat them as well.
Night tours are booked and run on an exclusive basis with indiviual groups and lasting two and a half hours.
These tours are where you can get up close and personal with the animals at the time of day when they are most active as many of them are nocturnal.
Go inside the enclosures with the staff and hand feed the likes of tawny frogmouths, golden possums, bettongs, sugar gliders and of course tassie devils.
