We were a bit pushed for time and so we didn't explore all of the opportunities but it was good to see the Tasmanian Devil feeding, the wombats and the feeding of the smaller nocturnal animals. If you are planning on stopping do check out the feeding times in advance as they are real highlights.

We visited natureworld with 2 adults and 3 young children during the school holidays. We had rung ahead to find out the feeding times from a very friendly staff member. We had planned to stay for 1.5 hours but ended up staying for 4.5! The whole experience was so much more than we expected. One of the keepers Chris, a... More

From the moment we walked through the door and were met by a lovely lady cradling an orphaned baby wombat to the minute we walked out the door to genuine farewells, we enjoyed the three or so hours we spent at this zoo (I'm not sure the word zoo still applies, wildlife park might be a better description). Our kids... More

We loved the animals at Natureworld. We were able to walk among the animals, touch them and feed them in the free range area. Great fun for the whole family. The staff is well informed and very friendly. I recommend visiting this park to experience the Austalian wildlife in one day.

This is a great place to visit. The guides are passionate and very knowledgable. They are part of a national breeding programme for the Tasmanian Devil but also treat injured or orphaned wildlife with no government funding. They manage this with the entrance fees. Decent cafe onsite as well.

Natureworld is a great place to visit with children. The enclosures are well designed to provide good viewing of a great range of Australian wildlife and the opportunity to feed the kangaroos was a hit with the kids and a great photo opportunity. There was a great range of beautiful parrots and many other birds roaming free including magnificent white... More

Animals are kept in larger enclosures and there are goats, sheep, geese, kangaroos and wallabies the kids (or big kids as it may be!) can hand feed. There is a good range of Australian wildlife and birds to see up close and a nice walk. The Tasmanian Devils are fed but unfortunately the girl doing the feeding seemed a bit... More

We learned a lot about Tassie Devils and Quolls and many other animals from a very knowledgeable guide who was obviously passionate about his job. We thought we would spend an hour there but ended up staying 3 hours! So much to see all the friendly goats and hens not to mention peacocks and the lovely white ones. Fed the... More

To steal words from my wife, "it's a bit like piss weak world, but with animals", but it was good to see some Tassie devils, and the people who run the park are doing good things, like participating in captive breeding programs, rehabilitating injured animals, enlightening and informing people about the animals, and more. I call it a worthy cause,... More
