  • Normally, I don't like going to places where animals are kept in enclosures, but I wanted to take overseas visitors to somewhere they could see Tasmanian devils. So off we went to this place, and we h...  more »
  • Definitely worth a visit. The sanctuary has some wildlife in large enclosures and others roaming free. You can get a feed bag for a buck and feed the roos and geese. The feedings are great, super cute...  more »
  • I was initially a bit skeptical but we were pleasantly surprised at what a great space this is. The feeding times were informative and well presented by staff who appeared to genuinely be interested i...  more »

  • The entrance fees were very reasonable for the experience. The keeper talks were informative and excellent. The animals were easy to see and up close. The bird enclosures were awesome. The food at the cafe was excellent! Overall a great experience for animal lovers and families.
  • Few animals. We saw three kangaroos and one of them seemed crook. Run down place. Been to better nature parks around tassie. I am aware of the fact that lacks public funding but that shouldn't be an excuse to have the place in that condition. On top of that unfriendly staff at the ticket counter, virtually mute. If someone works in customer service needs to have some skills. I give two stars just because the keeper was nice and informative.
  • Of all of the sanctuaries I've been to, this was the best. Be sure to take advantage of all of the animal introductions/information, (included in the entry fee). The man who taught about each of the animals was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about wildlife preservation, & even had Steve Irwin type charisma. You can feed wallabies and kangaroos, and may even pet a wombat (during the information). Highly recommended!
  • If you are going to visit one nature place them come here. Great value for money. We spent about 1.5 hours with the staff showing feedings and knowledge about the animals. All staff are great and knowledgeable. Love this place so much with the variety of animals and great atmosphere.
  • Fantastic place for all ages to stop off for an hour or two on your way up the East Coast. Passionate staff and fun free roaming kangaroos and birds to feed too.
