Mt Field National Park & Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is your opportunity to experience Tasmanian Devils, Wombats, Quolls and other Australian animals. The Tasmanian kangaroos at Bonorong are incredibly gentle, so take the delightful opportunity to hand feed them.

Our journey continues through the picturesque Derwent Valley dotted with orchards, hop fields and quaint reminders of the historic origins of the area. Then travel to Mount Field National Park, the oldest National Park in the state. Explore the green forest canopy where you crane your neck to see some of the tallest flowering trees in the world.
