  • Friends didn't join me as weather had been awful but I'm so glad that I made the effort to visit for evening feeding. Very knowledgeable keeper and you get close to the devils and quolls. Recommended.  more »

  • This was on my list travelling around, to see the Tasmanian Devils night feeding. We booked for the 8.45 time as it felt that the darkness would add to the experience. The weather at Cradle Mountain w...  more »

  • Made a special effort to visit before leaving Cradle Mountain and loved it. Try and get there for one of their guided tours which don't cost any extra. They also have feeding times at extra cost which may suit. Its a pity that a shuttle stop is not included nearby as I'm sure lots more would love to visit.
  • Cute looking things. Have to try and remember they are carnivores! Very educational visit. Good place to spend an hour if you're staying in cradle mountain.
  • Did the 530pm night feeding tour. Just over an hour was the right amount of time. The devils were gorgeous and we learnt heaps. The guide was very knowledgeable and you can tell hes been working in the field to help preserve these guys for a long time. Thank you.
  • Great and thorough guided tour around the grounds. The devils and quolls were out and very entertaining. So many of them. Well worth the small entry fee which also goes to the breeding program.
  • 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!
