Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

My animal whisperer moment

My animal whisperer moment

Tasmania has many animals indigenous to the state and the best way to see them all is to visit the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary where they care for abandoned or endangered animals and prepare them to be released back into the wild. 

Upon entry, you receive a bag of treats for the kangaroos who roam freely and have learned what the bags look like so you have to be careful or they'll try to take the whole bag...which is what happened to Alison! 😂

We wandered about for an hour and then attended one of the free guided tours which I highly recommend as you learn more about the animals and also get to pat a few as well.

Some of the animal highlights are wombats, sugar gliders, koalas, kangaroos, and of course the Tasmanian devils.
