A great way to see local animals up close. This park cares for sick animals and orphans and tries to re-introduce them to the wild. Since many of the animals are nocturnal, this really helps you get a good view during the day.

This so called Wildlife Park needs a lot of money & professional expertise invested into it. What a disappointment to take visitors from other countries to such a place as this . The expense of $22 pp senior discount was for us a big ripoff and will never be caught again. Suggest people go to one of several much better... More

Agree that the staff of the park are very passionate about the animals. A lot of opportunity to touch the wombat, kangaroo, and if their moods are good, the tassie devil as well. They currently have 7 devil joey's and watching them eat is like going through dinner time at my home!

The staff obviously care deeply for the wildlife in their care. The park was an amazing experience with the highlight being relaxing under the trees with the incredibly chilled kangaroos.

This place is a must do nature park if you are interested in Tassie Devils. A couple of feeding sessions each day and hands on experience with informative guides who are environmentally aware and friendly. The enclosures are roomy and lovely environments for the animals. Also great wombat, echidna and quolls. The bird enclosures are also great with eagles, kookaburras... More

All in all we really appreciated the great work of the sanctuary to rescue and protect wildlife. But we felt sorry that the animals where threaten as pets. Hugs, hundreds of selfies and petting are part of the daily life of this WILD animals. But of course, its not only the fault of the management, but also of the tourists... More

We took park in a guided tour that are offered regularly during opening times. This allowed us to hold & pat a wombat, touch a juvenile Tassie Devil, watch Tassie Devils being fed (highlight) and then meander through the park at our leisure. Kids fed kangaroos and saw a number of animals they were yet to see in the wild... More

We went for the 11 am tour which was fantastic as they threw a dead wallaby in the devils enclosure. We could stroke baby devils and wombats. The ethos of the place is so good. The guide was so enthusiastic and informative.

Before we went to this Tasmanian Devil Refuge I thought we would only see the devils. It was amazing as they had quolls, kangaroos, wombats, birds of prey and roaming bird life. I could have spent hours there. Unfortunately we were time poor and could not stay for the guided tour. It was also great to be able to feed... More
