Explore Tasmania’s ecosystems at East Coast Natureworld, offering an intimate look at the area’s incredible variety of native mammals, birds, and reptiles. Situated on over 61 hectares (150 acres) of forests, lagoons, and beaches, this sprawling ecology park offers visitors a chance to roam at their own pace, and a rare opportunity to hand-feed a number of animals, such as kangaroos and koalas. As you walk along, keep an eye out for Tasmanian devils, wombats, geese, eagles, bettongs, cockatoos, parrots, and pademelons. Be sure to stop by the park’s well-stocked souvenir shop, and grab a meal at the on-site café.

  • Many animals in Tassie are a bit on the shy side so you don't see them in the wild. Here you can see Tasmanian Devils feeding, Cape Baron Geese wandering about and we saw them with their chicks as wel...  more »

  • Our main highlight of Tasmania! People there takes serious care of animals! Don't miss the feeding, where you can see the animals in an active way (usually at that time wombats/devils would be sleeping), meanwhile the carer explains lots of interesting information about the animal! Lots of kangaroos are running free there.
  • An excellent experience. All the guides were knowledgable, passionate about the animals and well spoken. There are some fantastic animals here, some of which are happy to receive a pat and some food. The place relies on donations and entry fees for its funding, and it was well worth the entry cost. Highly recommend spending a few hours here and supporting them.
  • I highly recommend going to the feeding and talks, the staff were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. If you're in the area it's well both your time just to see the young wombats they were adorable.
  • Fantastic tour from really knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff, who clearly really care about rescuing animals. There are large natural areas of bush land where you can get right up close and feed wallabies, etc. Even the canteen is great. We spent 3 hrs there and weren't even expecting to.
  • Wonderful experience with placid tame kangaroos (we went back the next day just to fed them). Informative and entertaining tour about Tasmanian devils. Friendly staff, proceeds go to research & helping Tassy Devils. Cafe had basic child friendly meals. Well worth the trip.
