Nature world is a good spot to see some Tasmanian wildlife, including wombats and Tasmanian devils. There are lots of wallabies free roaming around the property. The park is large but not huge, so the wildlife has plenty of space, but we were able to get around to all the animals and birds in the time we had. We visited... More

An awesome nature park. It was very interesting to see all the animals in their natural habitat. I learnt a lot of things during the 10am feeding tour, explications of the keepers were very detailed. The staff is very friendly. You can navigate in the park alone and spend a lot of time with kangaroos, birds, etc.

We spent 5 hours here today. Highly recommended the 10am feeding tour. Very informative and interactive. Lunch was very well priced and fresh. Our 5 yo daughter spent the last hour saying goodbye and patting the kangaroos. I would highly recommend for a family outing

So sad that animals are kept in such small, poorly maintained and low stimulus enclosures. Not an enjoyable experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here having been unsure about fitting it in to a hectic schedule. It was well run, interesting, there was a wide range of animals to see and learn about and the staff were extremely helpful and informative. The place is run without state subsidy although they are saving, studying and preserving the lives of indigenous... More

If you have min 2 hours drop in here. Roomy and nicely set out; animals look in good condition. You need to do a tour though to get the most out of it as animals are then active and presented. Chris and Sarah both knowledgeable and enthusiastic, wonderful presenters. Even the free roaming kangaroos have good manners!

My family loves to go here for breakfast every time we are in Bicheno. They have a great basic menu with eggs and bacon, a big breakfast, pancakes, raisin toast and an egg and bacon burger. The food is always good quality and not expensive. The staff are friendly (they remember what we have, maybe we go too often?!?!) and... More

Learning about wombats and Tasmanian devils from enthusiastic keepers was so interesting. Being able to cuddle Esther an 8th old orphan wombat was an experience I never thought I would have. They are doing a wonderful job here and lets hope the can assist in keeping the Tasmanian devils from extinction. Feeding the kangaroos, ducks and other animals was good... More

The park and the keepers and the animals were great. The attitude and service in the café was a little disappointing though. My advice for what it's worth is enjoy the park and leave a donation they are doing a great job, but eat elsewhere.
