  • 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.

  • We did dinner with the devils and it was one of the best experiences. You're treated with drinks and some nibbles on arrival while you learn all about the animals they have there. You also get to see the devils have their dinner. Highly recommended!
  • 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.
  • Amazing place to visit, both for adults and children. Best way to see the Tasmanian Devil. Check out the nighttime feeding for a wonderful guided experience of Devils and Quolls.
  • 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.
  • Tools the kids and had a great time. Went to the feed the devils tour and the.kids just loved it. Learned a lot about the devils and their quoll counterparts. Fantastic guide who was really passionate about looking after the devils and wanting to help regain their numbers. Really something you have to see when up on the mountain
