Right after the Wineglass Bay Cruises at Coles Bay, we head out straight to Bicheno to the East Coast Natureworld to catch the Tasmanian Devils feeding time at 3pm. Luckily we got there on time. The guides shared a lot on the Tasmanian Devils and wombat. Most of animals in the park were left to roam freely which made my... More

Love this place, so different from going to a zoo.. Most of the animals are allow to walk around, so you are close to the nature and their own self. When feeding the Kangaroo, they will even hold your hands for the food... The kids certainly love the place.. Beautiful varieties .. It is definitely fit the name "nature world"... More

A must visit if passing through Bicheno. A lovely couple of hours well spent! Wildlife amazing, friendly & very photogenic. Much to see & animals not too enclosed. Really enjoyed the interaction with the wallabies, black swans & birds. One duck just followed us everywhere & sad to see us leave! The Tas devils a bonus & the staff were... More

With three teenagers in tow, we experienced a fabulous 2 hours stop at East Coast Natureworld. Able to feed kangaroos and wallabies roaming freely, seeing active Tasmanian Devils and Wombats (Sarah -very cute) and lots of different birds, white peacocks, black cockatoos, eagles etc. so much to see. Pit stop in cafe (yummy) before heading on the road. Kids loved... More

You can really see Tasmanian devils, emus, platypus, kangaroos, birds and all sorts of strange native animals at this rescue center. This center seems to leave single visitors such as myself alone to wander the grounds but will go all out for a tour group. I actually benefitted by seeing more because a Japanese tour group was going through soon... More

This park is so friendly, staff is so nice that I got enchanted by their care with customers and the wildlife. Great place to go to see Tasmania Devils in wild, also to bring family and kids. Feeding the kangaroos was the best experience ever!

We originally thought the entrance fee was too high, but then discovered that they received no assistance in running this park. It was DEFINATELY worth money. The staff were so helpful, informative about the animals, an obviously passionate about what they do. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting this little gem.

Must see what the little devils look like since we are here in Tasmania. Love the feeding for the Tasmanian Devils. The zoo keeper actually enters the enclosure and hand out the food (meat) to the fierce looking creatures. There are many "harmless" animals (including kangaroos, swans other birds) roaming the entire park. One of the swans came to bit... More
