  • Fantastic place, kids loved it. Fed freerange animals. Watched nocturnal animal and Tassie Devils being fed. 
  • Spent half a day here. Wombats, Kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils, Quolls, they have it all. The park is on flat ground but some of the animal exhibits are a bit of a walk. There is a great educational centre about Devils for the kids. Keeper talks are held regularly. I attended the one on Quolls and another on Tasmanian Devils. The keeper was knowledgeable and entertaining. I recommend this place to all.
  • Fantastic wildlife park. All sorts of Australian wildlife such as kangaroos, emus and the famous local tasmanian devil. A must do for anybody traveling Tasmania
  • My husband and I visited the park yesterday (Feb 2014) and were pleasantly surprised. The young keeper Christopher did a marvelous job of explaining how the Tassie Devils live and how they reintroduce them to the wilds. The same for the many wombats they have. He did a wonderful demonstration on how they feed the devils; making them work for the feed, not just throwing it to them, which prepared them for going back into the wild. We would certainly recommend a visit when touring the east coast of Tassie.
  • We rocked up at 3pm, just in time for the quill feeding. Our guide, Sarah, told us everything from sugar gliders, to goshawks, to devils and their facial tumours. The major highlight was meeting Angus, the rescued 9 months old wombat. We got to pat him! They have some kangaroos for you to get up close and personal with too. Definitely come here for a visit!
  • Great variety of animals. Good feeding displays. Intimate medium sized park. Come here to photograph kangaroos!
