After Dark Tasmanian Devil Feeding Tour At Cradle...

Reviewed April 4, 2018

We took our kids here only because the queue to buy National Park tickets & the shuttle bus was huge. Didn't even know this place existed & you don't need a NP pass to get in so big bonus.. So pleased we found out about it. We all had a ball seeing all the Tassie Devils in such a beautiful setting. And they also have quolls which you never get to see normally We stayed much longer than we expected as we just couldn't leave these amazing creatures. Highly recommend.

Just gonna say, i loves the little devils. Guide was informative and place well kept but the absolute stars were the devils and the quolls. Could have stayed for hours watching them. We did the devils feeding tour. Takes about an hour and so worth the fee.

This was interesting to see and learn about the Tasmanian Devils. It was freezing cold but it was fun.

This attraction is easy to miss unless you’re looking for it but once there satisfies. To join in a tour of the Tasmanian Devils arrive just a few minutes before your tour scheduled time. The sanctuary houses the Tasmanian Devils, Quolls and Eastern Quolls and has an adjoining interpretive center and gift shop. Our tour started promptly on time and continued for the allotted time. You will see the Tasmanian Devils, Quolls and Eastern Quolls being fed by the staff. I found the staff very knowledgeable, courteous with any and all questions welcomed. For our feeding of the animals, the area was well lit but still dark. Keep this in mind if you’re photographing during the feeding. I would also recommend a camera strap as the overlook into the pen is open air. On this attraction, you will learn a lot about the efforts to save and preserve the Tasmanian Devil from extinction and about specific challenges these animals face in the wild.

I researched several Tasmanian Devil parks throughout the state (there are a lot to choose from) and ultimately decided that this was the park I wanted to see. I was very pleased with my choice to come here!

We went to one of their Devils after Dark shows - and this was the show to see. The Devils are calm and quiet during the day, but at night is when you really grasp why they earned their name!

They begin by playing a wonderful video showing the amazingly beautiful garden of Eden which is Tasmania, as well as including a lot of great footage of the Devils and their interesting habits. Next we went outside to a huge, fenced in area completely illuminated with lights, where the guide kept a running commentary all about them, and the entire large viewing area also has a long deck, so everyone found a place where they could see all of the action very well. You were able to take as many photos as you wished (unlike the Bicheno Penguin tour which doesn't allow any photos), and really experienced the ferocious roars of the Devils as they competed and fought over the food. It was highly entertaining and very amusing, as well as informative and thoughtfully presented.

We also got to see the different types of quolls and observe them eating and fighting over their meals as well.

Located right behind the visitor Center, it was the perfect, easy location to reach when staying right within Cradle Mountain National Park. Don't miss this if you are in the area and want to see the Devils in action!
