Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary operates as both a wildlife rescue service and a animal hospital specialising in helping injured wildlife recover after illness or injury. The park is funded by visitor entrance fees. The park is a great way to get up close and learn about Tasmania's wildlife and you can even feed the wallabies and Kangaroos. Make sure to stick around as well and check out the Devil feeding, if you thought your friends had bad table manners you will be surprised.
