Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Greg Irons - Owner of Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
Greg Irons – Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is owned by Greg Irons. As a seven-year-old, Greg Irons came to Bonorong for a birthday party and told his mum, “I’m going to own this place one day!” He came to work at the then park as a young wildlife keeper and quickly worked his way through the ranks to become manager. By twenty-five years old he had achieved his dream of owning the business when the previous owners decided to pass the baton on to him.

For Greg, Bonorong is a means to help Tasmania’s fragile wildlife and ecology. Since he arrived, Bonorong has changed from a traditional, 1980’s era wildlife park to an innovative and active Wildlife Sanctuary.  The Sanctuary is focused on giving back to the Tasmanian environment, rather than simply being a showcase.

REVIEWS:

“This place is phenomenal. If someone gave this place a bad review it’s because they hate animals and conservation, and they are probably a goblin human who should climb into a time machine to go back to the 50s where you can gawk at performing circus animals and depressed monkeys driving cars.
Long live Alfie the charismatic alpha kangaroo, truly a Tasmanian icon. The staff were all awesome and so informative. I didn’t think I’d have as much fun as I did, highly recommend!” – Sagan C.
