Great tour but wish it was longer.

Our driver was Christian, not only did he make our tour super interesting pointing out all the different things but he was also very friendly and kept us laughing along the way. We had such a fun time and really enjoyed the tour I only leave off 1 star as we wish we had more time especially at Bonorong our final stop.

Not worth the effort

Too rushed. Attractions are small and self exploring is sufficient. Suitable for old people and sightseers. Not for independent adventure minded people.

Lovely tour to see Australian animals
This tour gave us an hour in Richmond - a tiny old-world town with some specialist shops, for instance the chocolate and ice cream shop. It is an easy walk to the famous bridge.

The next place was the wildlife sanctuary where you can see rescued animals. There are Tasmanian devils, kangaroos and other native animals. This tour would appeal to animal lovers, especially from other countries if the wish to see some Australian animals.

A MUST!
Feb. 2020
If you love animals this place is a must, and to think I almost didn't go. It was the highlight of my Australian tour. I went to both the daytime visit and the night time visit. The daytime visit allows you to feed the numerous kangaroos, some with joeys in their pouches. This is a good time to spend quality time with the lovable Tasmanian devils which are quite active. The staff loves to share info about the Devils and Wombats and Echidnas. The viewers really get up close to the animals. The echidnas are extremely human friendly and are as cute as can be. The gift shop is excellent. You can take close encounter pictures with a koala.
The evening visit is a must since most of the animals are nocturnal. You get to touch the echidnas, blue tongue lizard, wombats as well as see the sugar gliders, quolls, wombats awake and watch them eat. Again you get to feed the kangaroos.
Rather small but well worth it for it's variety, even wild possums roam the place. The birds are numerous, both caged and free flying.
I'm surprised about the criticism about it not being a fancy zoo, it's an animal sanctuary and rescue that does a lot of good works. The staff is very knowledge and super friendly and if they don't know the answer they'll look it up for you. No the cages aren't fancy but they don't need to be and they're building new cages all the time.

Well planned trip
Feb. 2020 • Couples
We joined this tour during our stay in Hobart.

The tour took us to Richmond a quaint little town with lots of charm and character.

Then we made our way to Bonorong wildlife sanctuary. This sanctuary is really interesting with Tazzie Devils, kangaroos etc. The staff are really passionate about their work and are clearly devoted.

Our driver throughout the tour was Nigel who was really informative and had a great sense of humour.

I would highly recommend this tour.
