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.

It was such a great experience. The staff here aren’t just knowledgeable about the animals, they are passionate about their care and educating the public. I would recommend this for everyone. It can get a little muddy in the rain and a little slippery in one of the last exhibits, but it was very manageable.

No words to explain how fantastic this was. For our family of four it was a lot to spend for a couple of hours... and was 100% worth every cent. Don't just go for the night tour, go early and spend time seeing the animals in daylight too. We could have spent an entire day just with the kangaroos (and we live in the bush, where we have them in our yard most days). Animal lovers, you will not regret spending your money on this.

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.
