About Us

We thrive on educating as many people as possible about how we can all help save, rehabilitate and release injured animals.
We are a sanctuary specialising in the care and rehabilitation of orphaned and injured wildlife while giving you an up-close and personal experience. All our animals are here for a reason and a significant majority of our funding comes from our generous guests that visit the park. We need you to visit us to continue our work.

At Bonorong you will see a number of species that are sadly now extinct everywhere but Tasmania. They include the Tasmanian devil, the Eastern quoll, the Tasmanian pademelon and the shy Tasmanian bettong. These four marsupial species have made their last stand Tasmania and other marsupials sadly are at risk of joining that list.

FAQs

  • Is there any public transport to Bonorong?

    The public bus network can be used to travel from Hobart CBD to the town of Brighton, which is located 1.5 kilometres from the Sanctuary. From Brighton, visitors can taxi or walk to Bonorong. Please see www.metrotas.com.au/timetables for more information.

  • I am interested in caring for wildlife. How do I go about this?

    We are always in need of passionate, dedicated people to help care for wildlife. The carer's network is managed by the State Government but the training is held at Bonorong every few months when there is enough interest. To register your interest or to find out when the next training date is, please contact us so we can send you an information pack.

  • Can I volunteer or do work experience at Bonorong?

    Bonorong is dedicated to providing opportunities and guidance to people wanting to join the animal-care industry. While we are unable to take work experience students, we do offer nationally-accredited courses and an internship onsite at Bonorong.We do accept volunteers at Bonorong from time to time who can help with essential tasks like raking and gardening or on specific working-bee days.
