  • A great place for locals and visitors alike. The animals look happy and healthy and you can tell the staff really love their jobs. The tour was informative and I loved seeing our native animals in a new light. The grounds themselves are beautiful. Well worth the entry fee.
  • Very expensive for what it was. Not saying it wasn't good but $70+ for a family of four is very steep considering we didn't see anything for about 15 minutes. It's great what they're doing here and the free tours are super informative. The open kangaroo area was really great as well. Enjoyed the trip but wish it was a little more affordable
  • Fairly pricey but worth the money as you know it's going to a great cause. They rescue and if possible rehabilitate injured wildlife and there are lots of opportunities to get up close and personal with wallabies, wombats and more. Tassie devils, eagles and other birds are also on display. Lots of opportunity to hear from the people who work there. A nice family activity.
  • This well run wildlife sanctuary has a solid focus on rehabilitating and potentially releasing injured native animals. No gratuitous animal cuddling photo ops here. The Tasmanian Devil and spotted quoll breeding work is fantastic. The tour guides are knowledgeable and good fun. Heaps of random kangaroos roaming around and keen for a handful of food from a paper bag. One improvment I would suggest is slightly better accessibility for young kids. A bit more info and interactivity would help the little ones engage a bit more.
  • After initially thinking that the entry fee of $26 was high, we left feeling that this was good value for money. The grounds and enclosures are attractive and well maintained and there was a good range of Tasmanian animals. The highlight for us was the interactive guided tour with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. We were able to finally pat a wombat and even a Tasmanian devil!
