This little place is a waste of time & money. There is barely any animals and very few enclosures. I can't stress enough how little there was to see there. We took 45 mins to see the whole place but this included at least a 15 minute play in the park that was there. The whole place is covered in... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the size and quality of this wildlife park. Whilst some animals are in enclosures, many are located in walk through vast areas. The park has a focus on injured animal and wildlife rehabilitation and run a Tasmanian Devil breeding program to increase the depleting population of Devils due to the facial tumour disease. Some animals... More

The park opens at 9 so we got there at 9:30, we had the whole place to ourselves. We had a great tour guide called Chris who was very helpful, he fed the Devils and answered all of our questions with great knowledge. He then took us to the wombats and helped us to pat her. The kangaroos ate the... More

Animals have a great enclosure, devils are the main feature here. We watched the 11 and 12 month old devils be themselves climbing amongst the trees, a really delightful experience. Keeper was lovely, very knowledgable and really loved her job. The back part of the park appeared a little more run down, more signs could be available.

We had a great couple of hours here. The animals are great beautifully cared for and the surroundings are very pleasant. Devil feeding and talk was a real treat, as was the impromptu wombat patting and chat.

Park is well set up and maintained. Very informative and friendly staff. Animals are all well looked after and the addition of a 'road map' along with good signposting makes it very easy to navigate.

Lots of poo everywhere was first impression, have to watch where your walking. Then as we walked around we were surrounded by kangaroos which were very hungry and quite pushy to get the food. I'd be very careful with kids or elderly, my daughter ended up with nasty scratches and bruises on her arm from a overly excited roo, I... More

It was my first time in australia and tasmania, so I thought I had to go too a zoo to see the tasmanian devils, kangaroos and koalas! It was not difficult to find the place by driving, not too expensive for the entrance fee. As per all zoos, you can purchase food to feed the kangaroos. We saw alot of... More

The park was interesting and had plenty to see. The bird aviary was fantastic and a must. The keepers were great and informative. The Tassie Devil feeding is also a must.
