Animal sanctuary that provides a great place to see local animals, particularly the Tassie Devils and Wombats, up close and personal. Very informative tour and animals are well taken care of. It is not a zoo, but more like a preserve where orphaned baby animals (usually due to adult females dying as roadkill) are cared for and then released back... More

My Family (3 adults and an8 year old Grandson) had a great time here. The zoologist Chris who introduced many of the creatures was brilliant as was the Irishman who showed us the Wombats. We loved feeding the free ranging birds and wallabies and the walk through compounds were excellent. Well worth the money particularly when you learn of the... More

We visited on a rainy day, but that did not bother us. We put on our ponchos and set off to feed the animals. There were so many Kangaroos and similar looking for something to eat. We were able to feed and pat them with out a worry. The Talk and feeding demonstration for the Tassie Devil was fantastic. It... More

This place is worth so much more than 5 stars, it's really such a wonderful experience being here. I really appreciate how it's a small sanctuary, and you know that the keepers are really involved with the animals they look after. I arrived here with my partner when we chanced upon a brochure of this place at another tourist location,... More

What a beautiful sanctuary, well worth the visit. Everyone of the staff was so passionate about this sanctuary especially those looking after the animals. The keeper talks and feeding of the animals was fascinating especially the snakes. A lot of the animals were just roaming around the sanctuary and looked really happy and healthy. Many of the staff are voluntary... More

This is the best wildlife sanctuary I have ever been to. We had one day to spend in Bicheno and our initial plan was to take part in the Devils in the Dark tour. Unfortunately this tour was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, so we decided to visit Natureworld instead, which proved to be an excellent alternative. The keeper talks... More
