  • Inside was larger than expected with many sections holding the cute little devils. There are feeding times so it’s best to go then otherwise most are asleep. Opportunity to adopt a tassie devil which ...  more »

  • 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.
