Your tour from Hobart starts as you depart the city for the drive to Bonorong Wildlife Park, catching views of city sights like Constitution Dock, the ABC Building (Hobart’s original sandstone railway station) and Derwent Entertainment Centre.

Wildlife park was fun - lots of kangaroos to interact with as well as opportunity for a close up with a koala. Highly recommend the Bonorong Wildlife park

This was a great tour, just alittle rushed. The Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is small, but so informative and wonderful. This wildlife sancutary, cares deeply for all the animals that are brought here. You will love seeing all the Aussie animals. The tour of Richmond was great too, but didn't have much more than 45 minutes here. Not enough time, but well worth it anyway. Seeing the Richmond Jail was very interesting as well. I do recommend going on this tour.

Bonorong was informative and entertaining. Well worth the trip. The Richmond tour was only an hou, but a pretty city to wander through.

I enjoyed this trip, my only criticism would be that both the stops at Richmond and the wildlife park are too short and you feel really rushed at each location. Richmond reminded me of an old english village. The wildlife park was great and I always enjoy feeding kangaroos!

A smashing trip despite the weather - it poured all day. A great driver/guide took us first for a short stay in Richmond. We visited the local gaol and a bakery - both equally interesting. We then headed off to Bonorong. What a fantastic place! It is a sanctuary for injured and attacked animals from all over Tasmania. They aim to return the animals to the wild wherever possible too. Fed loads of kangaroos - some with joeys in their pouches. One of the staff then took us on a tour of some of the other animals including Tasmanian Devils, koalas and wombats. Her love and respect for these animals shone through. A small wildlife park but a totally worthwhile and enjoyable visit.
