If I could I would give this tour 10 stars. Just one gripe. ....not enough time for each stop. I could have spent the whole afternoon in either place and gone back again. A tip from the wise..... don't hang around the game warden at the wild life park for too long. He loves his job and is very enthusiastic about it, but does tend to talk for too long, which cuts down on the very limited time you have in the park. There is so much to see and only an hour in which to do it. The warden will spend about 45 minutes showing you the wombat, devil and koala and the rest you are left to your own devices. There is just not enough time. As for for Richmond. .. A lovely quaint town, but also not enough time to fully explore. Maybe the tour should be broken into two?

Enjoyed meeting the wombats, kangaroos, koala and Tasmanian Devil. The tour guide was passionate about the animals in his care. Only negative point was that there just wasnt enough time to see everything!

4 star rating: Recommended August 2014

A bit pricey, but still a very cool tour that I highly recommend! Bonorong was awesome!! We got to feed and pet kangaroos, pet a koala and wombat, and see Tasmanian devils get fed. Plus we saw lizards and tons of birds (including emus and some birds that actually spoke to us!). The tour guide there was awesome and our driver was also great. The stop in Richmond was nice, but perhaps a bit too long. The old town is quaint and pretty, but there's not too much to do there.

Bonorong Wildlife Park was awesome but I wish that we could have spent at least 2 hours there instead of 1. Time at Richmond could be shorter would be good.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2013

We enjoyed feeding the kangaroos and the other wild life.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2012

The wildlife Park was quite natural and allowed excellent time with interaction with the animals. The only complaint I had was that there was not enough time in Richmond to really check our the town and it's history. The tour should be extended to allow more time in the town. We got lucky and had Kevin drive us on this tour aswell, and it felt like a family trip. Even with the limited time in Richmond, it's a must do trip! Desmond

I wish we could have had more time. It was too rushed.

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2015

Bonorong is AMAZING! Richmond, not so much. If you can do a tour that just goes to Bonorong for less money than the combo, I'd do that. Richmond was pretty boring. My impression was that it was going to be old building after old building. Not so. There were some old buildings sprinkled around an otherwise average-looking small town. The oldest bridge in Australia in Richmond was beautiful but not worth the extra 2 hours of the tour. Also, the guide told us about a short-cut to the bridge from where he parked the bus but failed to let us know there were LOTS of steps -- we had a wheelchair!

Having said all that, Bonorong is AMAZING! Feeding the kangaroos was wonderful. I would actually do that again if I ever return to Tasmania.
