Orientation: Let's Get Wild (23 February 2024)

Southern Campus

Let’s Get Wild: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Friday 23rd February – Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Join us and get up close and personal with some of Tassie’s iconic wildlife – we’re talking Tasmanian devils, quolls and kangaroos! This unique small group includes a guided tour, coach transport and snacks, normally valued at over $100, yours for just $15! For many of the animals you’ll meet, Tasmania is the only place you’ll see them on earth as they no longer exist anywhere else.  For others, Tasmania is a last refuge – they are survivors of legions that once spanned a continent but now this little island is all they have left.  Bonorong operates Tasmania’s largest 24/7 Wildlife Rescue Service, bringing aid to thousands of animals each year.  Enjoy a tour with Bonorong’s Wildlife Keepers, visiting wombat, devil and echidna enclosures to provide an up-close experience.  Enjoy this wonderful intimate and educational experience!
