    I still have the oddly compelling smell of little wombat butts on my coat sleeve and will never wash it off because it smells gorgeous. But besides that, I hand-fed mama kangaroos with joeys in their ...  more »

    Kangaroos jumping and delivering to your around... You can feed them obviously very carefully and without disturbing them... The Tasmanian Devil is a spectacular creature: so harmless it's scary to see her eat!. There is a shop with souvenirs super original. At the time I went it rained... But it was not impediment to see animals that come out at certain hours to be fed.

  • This wildlife park is miles ahead of any other place we have visited ! The layout is great and the experienced staff interact with the animals in a confident positive manner! The knowledge of Ned, the main guide, was unbelievable - his hour tour and talk was over too quickly ! Highly recommended !
  • I have to say the whole park was a bit small, not many anaimals. Facilities are a bit old expecially in the Education Centre. But the interactive tour was great, it made the whole trip perfect. You must join the daily tour otherwise yoy will feel dissapointed. We enjoy the time he told story about wombat, Tasmanian Devil and the feeding show.
  • Superb experience. Didn't think we would be there very long as look pretty plain but we ended up spending 4 odd hours
  • We had a great day at Trowunna. The tour guide was really good. He told really well about wombat and Tasmanian Devils and their habits. In this park you get the chance to get really close to the animals and even get to pat some of the hand raised animals on the tour. We felt they really take good care of the animals and although the park is small we spend quite some time because we could get really close to the animals. By visiting this park you make a contribution to the breeding program, so it is money well spend!
  • SAD: We thought it was park or The beasts were free and It was up to us to find them, in the end no it is poor beast are locked in enclosures, Birds are in cage. Very sad for animals!
