Bonorong Wildlife Conservation Centre
Tasmania Devils are such unique animals, found in the wild only in Tasmania. Extinct on mainland Australia, places such as Bonorong Wildlife Conservation Centre are leading the way to ensuring the survival of the cute but ferocious devil.
Board the bus to see the Tasmania Devil, quolls, wombats, kangaroos and koalas, on this fabulous day tour from Hobart to the Bonorong Wildlife Conservation Centre.
Formerly called Bonorong Wildlife Park, it is roughly 20 minutes drive from Hobart and is set in a delightful setting for the family to enjoy the large variety of Australian animals. You can hand feed wallabies, get a photo with a wombat or koala and see not so well known animals, such as the Pademelon and Spotted Quoll.
A Pademelon is like a miniature kangaroo found extensively throughout Tasmania. By day it makes wooded gullies and dense rainforest home and moves to open areas at night for food. It is high on the diet list of Tasmania Devils, Spotted-tail Quolls and Wedge Tail Eagles.
There is a nice cafe if you would like afternoon tea and a snack, but the main feature at Bonorong Wildlife Conservation Centre are the ferocious Tasmanian Devils, cute looking creatures but certainly not an animal to cuddle.
After touring the Wildlife Park you will have a stop at Richmond, one of the oldest and most historic towns in Australia. You must take a look at the Richmond Bridge, the first bridge ever built in Australia.
This is a terrific bus tour that all ages will enjoy departing Hobart every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 1.30 pm.
Duration of the Tasmanian Devils Tour is 4 hours and prices start at around $85 per adult with children half price.
