  • I paid $30 for the night feeding tour. It was worth every cent. The devils look cute, but they do not have likeable personalities. The guide, Danielle, was excellent and gave a great presentation and ...  more »

  • Surprisingly Great, Informative, Under-advertised Gem It's just a small sign on the main road, in between a series of lodging options and the Park Visitor Center, but visiting was a terrific surprise and well worth the time! Not just Tasmanian Devils, but other marsupial predators as well. Great guided tour and discussion by naturalist interpreters, much larger grounds and number of habitats than expected. This center is working to help solve the puzzles of the debilitating cancer impacting (and killing) Devils as well as supporting careful breeding to expand the genetic pool. Highly recommended!
  • Fantastic experience for kids and adults alike. The guide was very knowledgeable and gave great informative talks on the Tasmanian devils including their historic and current issues. The centre is doing a huge amount of work in the conservation of tassie devils.
  • I was so excited to see the devils! It is a small, modest sanctuary, but it is doing great things for these precious little animals. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to speak in detail about the devils, and also the quolls which are cared for at the sanctuary.
  • Set up mainly as breeding for repopulating Tasmanian 😈, it is also for research and refuge for the 😈 and the quoll. We attended one of the feeding events and we were lucky enough to have a staff guide who was well versed with the Tasmanian 😈 conservation program. Overall I think that even with a just a guided tour, it would be very informative.
  • Pretty cool visit, especially to see Tasmanian Devils up close while they feed. They also have qualls which are way less interesting though. Overall a good visit, although it's expensive
