  • In the wild these animals so difficult because you get to see this is a great opportunity. The Tasmanian Devils are bred to be back later in the wild to be turned off. The tour is really interesting, first you get a info-film and then you go with a guide the park around to the animals. At the evening tour you have chance to the Devils food. In the park are also other Carnivore marsupials (spotted quoll and tail spotted quoll). Your entrance fee money goes to the conservation of the species.

  • Up close and personal encounter with the endangered Tasmanian Devil (as close as you can get without getting your fingers bitten off). Their knowledge of these carnivorous marsupials is commendable, their conservation efforts are very much needed for these little devils. Overall, a good experience, especially if you have young kids.
  • Deserve all the support they get from your visit. They are privately funded and doing an outstanding job against time to save and repopulate the Tasmanian devil and 2 species of quolls. Great night feeding experience and guide fantastic. Please support them with a visit.
  • Lovely little Tassie Devils habitat up Cradle Mountain. Just beware if raining, most of it is open air, best left for a sunny day!
  • The little devils were highly entertaining. The tour was also very informative
  • Loved this place. Be patient when viewing the animals and you will be rewarded.
