Full description
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.

Wonderful place with knowledgeable and kind people. So refreshing to visit a sanctuary and kesrn about our beautiful animals rather than selfies in wildlife parks with subdued koalas... The evening feeding experience was magical. So great to see some very rare animals up close. Was a real privilege to take part. These guys are making a real difference, so please support them.

We loved it!! Robyn was a great tour guide! The paths are not good for wheelchair access, especially if you use a manual chair. We managed to get around some of it with a power chair with very good suspension & tilting; but just take the “wheelchair access” in the description with a very big grain of salt. Especially if you want to see the Quolls & tawny frogmouth. Couldn’t get to their enclosure with a chair.

We went on the standard night tour with Robbie, who was absolutely wonderful. She was so excited to share everything she knew about the residents in their care and was a pleasure to spend the evening with. It was so evident from the very beginning that she was kind, genuine and so passionate about her work. My partner and I left the sanctuary with plenty of hugs/close encounters, photo opportunities and a much better understanding of the animals within their care. The sanctuary is funded entirely from tourism and donations, and is one of only a few places we have been where it is obvious that the well-being and rehabilitation of the animals, as well as the education of the public are the #1 priority. 10/10, will definitely visit again.
