Empowering Wildlife Experiences

Whether you’ve come across the world or you’re just down the road - welcome to Bonorong!

Bonorong is a sanctuary for wildlife run by a passionate team of like-minded people. We're a social enterprise: a little business with a biiiig heart. The skills and funds generated through the sanctuary allow us to proactively address problems in our surrounding environment and communities.

A visit to Bonorong is a chance to come closer than ever to something wild and fragile. You’ll come face to face with animals that went extinct long ago in other parts Australia -- the same animals we’re working hard to protect now.

By walking through our old wooden gate you’ll become part of something special - everything we do, we do with your help.

From all of us here at Bonorong (four feet, two feet and no feet), we look forward to seeing you soon!

  • Farewell Fidget
    Farewell Fidget
    We write to you today with heavy hearts. “Fidget” our beloved resident brushtail possum has passed away. He hadn’t been acting himself the past couple of weeks and our vet discovered an abdominal mass that we suspect to be cancer. He had surgery on Saturday, but sadly didn’t pull through. The staff at Bonorong are understandably devastated by the loss. If you knew Fidget please give him a loving thought...
