  • A great way to see the devils and quolls all for a good cause
  • We really enjoyed the visit to see the Devils@Cradle. Even though it was freezing cold, the guide who took us on the tour of the facility was great, knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. It was quite interesting to learn about the devils and the work the sanctuary is doing to help the devils' plight.
  • Great for kids. Walk right up near a tassie devil
  • We visited here over Christmas. We were a little late joining the tour, but the guides helped us in without much disturbance. Watching the Devils eat their dinner was really quite the experience. They've got quite a variety of enclosures and different animals too. We'd go back!
  • Newly renovated, a truly unique experience with a peek into the unusual life of the Tasmanian Devil.
