Tasmanian devils and wallabies are the main attractions at Bonorong (it means “native companion”). Most of the animals have been rescued after injury, and owner Greg Irons is passionate about saving and conserving indigenous creatures. You’ll also find snakes, koalas, echidnas, kangaroos, and wombats here. Everyone gets a free bag of kangaroo food on entry. Koala cuddling isn’t allowed in Tasmania, but it’s possible to stroke one. Tour times are 11:30am and 2pm daily. Exclusive night tours (minimum two people; cost A$175 per person) to see the animals when they are most active are run on demand and are highly recommended. Allow 2 hours.
