This place doesn’t have much Tasmanian devil that can be seen in day light. Only animals that we could see was Wombat.

Not sure if it’s worth spending $68 for a family pass.

Great place to meet the residents of Tasmania. The full range are there and you can feed and pet the kangaroos and wallabies. The Tasmanian devils are great as are the wallabies. Go on the informative tours. A must.

Went to visit Natureworld with some trepidation as I do not like to see wild animals in cages but this is not a zoo. Most native animals arrive here as injured/abandoned -some remain as residents, while others are returned to the wild. This means the population does change.
The sanctuary is also involved in programmes to improve the survival of a number of species in the wild, such as the Tasmanian Devil.
We arrived before 10.00 am and then had a series of fascinating encounters with different animals, accompanied by the young keepers, Chris and Sarah, as they fed them, including Tasmanian Devils, wombats, quolls, possums, sugar gliders, echidnas, emus, tiger snakes, and a variety of birds, including a beautiful white peacock. A troop of Eastern Grey kangaroos roam outside the cages and enclosures occupied by the previous list and are very friendly and looking for food. You can buy pellets to feed them in the Gift Shop.
Chris and Sarah are knowledgable, enthusiastic and passionate about their work and shared so much information. Before we knew it we had been there for 3+ hours!
Natureworld may seem expensive at $26 each for adults, but well worth it and good to know this all goes towards their running costs and programmes. They have no other funding.
Thoroughly recommended if you want to know more about Tasmanian wildlife and to see them close up.
