We had a great time on this tour. The bus picks you up outside your hotel, and then takes you first to Richmond. Richmond was much more interesting than I at first anticipated. The entire town is historical. You get to see the old brick buildings and many other historical sites. There is a small indoor market, and there are also plenty of interesting novelty shops. After a short stay in Richmond, you drive out to the wildlife park, where you learn about Tasmanian devils, koalas, wombats, etc. You can actually pet the koalas and wombats. You also get to feed the kangaroos. This was a wonderful half-day tour, and the driver was very informative and amusing.

Interacting with over 100 free roaming kangaroos was a one of a kind experience, and had a great time learning about all the other animals that have been rescued. Beautiful location as well.

Visiting Bonorong Wildlife Park provided an opportunity to view animals we had only read about. There were quite a few people the afternoon we visited, but didn't have to stand in any lines. Some of the animals were in secluded parts of their habitat so weren't see. Overall, very enjoyable. Richmond is an old Georgian town dating to the early 1800's, with lots of old buildings, churches and a colorful history. Enjoyed a brew in the hotel pub. I felt the tour was value for money, and educational.

Bonorong was really neat, but I wish I had a little more time to enjoy it there. They offered a guided tour and we got to touch a koala. The Richmond part of the tour was a bit disappointing. We wanted to see a gaol - and we did tour the gaol there - but it wasn't a part of the tour and cost extra and wasn't guided. The driver we had was one of the best.

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!
