  • Small area, but had multiple animals here. Enthusiastic and informative guides on the tours. Definitely worth stopping to visit. You can feed the free roaming kangaroos. What was really interesting was being able to see what the staff were doing in the vet hospital. The staff were dealing with a snake when we were there.
  • This visit was one of our highlights of Tassy. We did the tour and saw many beautiful animals like wombats, kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, koalas and more. It’s not merely a zoo, but they rescue injured animals or baby animals whose mothers died. You can even watch the vet treating the animals live here. You’ll also get a bag of food to feed kangaroos. It was a lovely experience. The staff we saw was also amiable, motivated and treated the animals with much respect.
  • Truly wide life animal rescued here for recovery before releasing back to nature. very enthusiastic guides (some are volunteer !) able to answer every question you may have. it's a fun to feed the kangaroo (wallaby? forgot)
  • Amazing place. Friendly staff, friendly animals, interesting animals. Great for both kids and adults. Reasonable prices and it all goes to good causes. Would definitely go again. Can be difficult to get an Uber back to the city, our driver offered to wait for us, real nice guy.
  • Simply AMAZING! I was able to feed Kangaroos, pet Koalas & Wombats. We watched the "Kangaroo Races", the Tasmanian Devils played & ate as well. It was a once in a lifetime experience!
