  • Whether you have children or not this is a MUST DO! Lived in Tasmania most of my life and this has to be the best Zoo/ Wildlife sanctuary in the state. Staff are friendly, helpful and informative. You can feed the wildlife literally from the palm of your hands all day. Regular and daily selective animal feeding times so you won't have to worry about missing out on seeing Tassie Devils up close.
  • Unlike so many nature-related tourist attractions found throughout the world, this is a true nature reserve, where the birds and animals are either rescued or the result of breeding programs aimed at bolstering dwindling natural populations. The intent is not primarily entertainment, but education and appreciation of these unique Tasmanian species. Be sure to follow the scheduled feedings, as the guide/feeder is highly knowledgeable about all the animals and takes time to answer questions and describe behaviours/habitats. The feeding times are the very best opportunity to see the animals, since many typically sleep in burrows or are hidden at other times. This attraction was a pleasant surprise and we'll worth spending a couple hours enjoying. Highly recommended.
  • Fair variety of animals kept for recovery or conservation reasons makes this a fun and guilt free experience. Informative guided tours were interesting, with friendly staff very willing to answer questions and offer petting opportunities, while still keeping the animals' needs a priority. Café was quaint, and the blueberry waffles were absolutely delicious and cheap - definitely worth visiting for breakfast alone.
  • It was great, loved having the interaction with the animals. Food was great at the restaurant on site and the service was fast and efficient! Very nice people working the restaurant and the front counter!
  • Truly a brilliant brilliant place!! The guides were not just zoo keepers, they were superbly knowledgeable conservationist who absolutely love the animals and passionate about the animals. They had such a close bond with the animals and unlike a traditional zoo, you could tell these animals were really happy, healthy and so well taken care off! A must visit place when visiting Tasmania.
