We went to see the Devils @ Cradle and it was great! There was lots of devils at most stages! The 1 year old devils just outside the door were the best - I got some great photos! The quolls are great too! Not a huge place but well worth a visit!

Devils@Cradle is a fantastic introduction to devils and their lesser known cousins, quolls. The keepers are dedicated and passionate about these incredible creatures; especially the current plight of the Tasmania Devil – an excruciating facial cancer which has decimated almost 90% of the Devil population since 1998. Brilliant guide!

One of the most amazing experiences we've done. What you see and are educated on by staff is inspiring. The work they do is vital.

Fabulous wildlife experience. Small group of appx 20 x3 daily to visit at feeding time. Knowledgeable staff, worth going, important place for ensuring healthy Tasmanian devils survive the facial tumour disease that is drastically reducing their numbers. Shares the work with Trowunna Wildlife park. see TD's and quolls up close. Fascinating. Good gift shop and not overpriced.

It is possible to walk around the sanctuary on your own during the day but if you can I would recommend the tour by a keeper. The park is small with various enclosures of Tasmanian Devils and quolls. Although there are written signs telling you what is in the enclosures, I think you get much more out of the experience... More

Worth the money to see feeding time & listen to the informative guide talking about Tasmania's native animals. the only negative is that the groups are far too big & viewing at certain cages was very difficult at times.

The facility was a really good introduction to Devils and quolls for the kids (aged 8, 11 and 12) and gave them an appreciation of the challenges facing these species. I felt the session seemed padded out to fill in an hour. We really could have had a shorter session. Staff were knowledgeable and clearly caring towards the animals although... More
