We initially just planned to quickly stop by, but ended up staying for 3 1/2 hours, watching the animals being fed and listening to the staff. And feeding wallabies ourselves. Don't expect this to be a zoo - it isn't. They do a great job in nursing animals to make them ready to be released again, if possible. I have... More

We were very impressed by the information that was given by the enthusiastic and knowledgable staff here. The passion and care for animals was clearly audible and visible. It's not the average tourist attraction, it's not a zoo, even though the term "feeding times" may be associated with those things. It was not about the feeding or about taking cute... More

My partner and I stopped off here on our way to Coles Bay and it was probably the highlight of our trip! Loved how natural the entire site was, and the ethos behind it (many animals being rehabilitated). Getting so up close to a Tasmanian devil was a once in a lifetime experience. We attended the nocturnal and Tasmanian devil... More

This is one of the best wildlife facilities I've ever visited. It may only be small and when you walk through, it's nothing too flashy but stay for the entire feedings/presentations. We learnt so much and got up close with the animals (you won't get this chance at many zoos!). The Tassie Devil component was absolutely amazing and the highlight... More

A lovely "zoo". Keeper's talks while feeding the Sugar Gliders. Devils and Wombat were great. Very pleasant place to walk around - suitable for mobility impaired (I am) - lots to see, and all animals seemed very happy.

We were there for feeding time for the Wombats and Devils, plus a tour of the Nocturnal areas. Very informative and dedicated staff. They certainly love their furry babies and ita pleasure to enjoy with them. Warm and fuzzy experience. Most enjoyable.

The kids loved it and the staff were very enthusiastic and knowledgible. Had a great time. It was nice to hear about all of the work they do in looking after injured wildlife and their committment to getting these animals back in to the wild. I was especially impressed with their participation in the Tassie Devil project helping to fight... More

Chris was extremely enthusiastic, dispite a pretty grey, rainy day! I have been to alot of similar sanctuarys in the passed but few have spoken quite as passionately about their animals, teamed with extensive knowledge. The enclosures were very well spaced and attended too. We had a fantastic day. The entrance fee was well worth it!
