     We decided to go back to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary again today along with Bonnie and Rich.  We walked to the visitor and bought our shuttle tickets at AU$25 each.  It is about a 30-40 minute ride.  It is AU$24.99 to enter.  The shuttle comes back about 90 minutes later for the ride back to Hobart.  Bonorong is in Brighton, TAS.  www.bonorong.com.au is their website.  I had such a great time feeding the kangaroos.  They were not slobbery at all, your hand was dry when they finished.  They love to have their chests rubbed.

Quite a few had Joeys in their pouch.  The Tasmanian Devil was also fun.  We also saw a wombat and a koala and emu and birds.

Wombat on the left and Koala on the right.  We browsed in the gift shop and the shuttle was right on time.  On the way home we saw the site of the Cadbury Chocolate factory and the Government House.  It looks like a castle and we could see it from the ship.  We also saw the oldest chimney.  It cost too much to take down, so they left it.

The entertainment tonight was Colleen Williamson, a soprano from the USA.  We enjoyed it.  I guess you can tell by now that we like all the shows.  Some appeal to us more than others, but they are all good.
