Natureworld is a truly amazing place. Dedicated to the conservation and rehabilitation of our wonderful native animals. The staff are warm and friendly and knowledegable in all aspects of the animals. A truly educational experience. The close encounters were exceptional. Well worth the money. The admission fee was very reasonably priced and they made a great cuppa in the cafe.

This place is amazing, hosting rehabilitation services for Australian wildlife. You can see most of what the world thinks of when they think Australian wildlife, kangaroos wandering around waiting to be fed, wombats, snakes, tasmanian devils, emus, water birds, parrots and noisy lorakeets as well as the nocturnal marsupials like possums, quolls and others. The tours were very informative with... More

We visited Natureworld expecting to stay for half an hour mainly to see a Tasmanian Devil. We ended up staying three and a half hours and really enjoyed walking around and seeing so many native animals and birds. We watched with interest the feeding of the Tasmanian Devils and Quolls and possums and saw many wombats. We wandered here and... More

The name suggests this is attraction that has lots to offer - suggest you dont expect too much. Food for lunch was ordinary and not that many animals to see. A bit tired looking and could do with a revamp/freshing up. If you have young children would be ideal to stop and let them feed some ducks, kangaroos and expend... More

We took our 21mth old here recently and had a great day. The entrance fee was more than fair, and for an extra $1 you can purchase feed for the kangaroos (great value). The petting zoo area (Old MacDonalds Farm) was a hit with goats, lambs, ducks, turkeys, chickens and peacocks. The Tassie Devil feed was great, as were the... More

This is not a slick, big city operation. It is a family run park where the people clearly care about the animals in their care. The entry fee is reasonable and believed to be good value for the money. We really came to see some Tasmanian Devils and were not disappointed. Our timing was perfect as we got to see... More

This is a wonderful wildlife sanctuary with staff who care. The kangaroos are extremely friendly and so gentle. Devils and wombats are amazing creatures, be sure to see the feeding. We took the walk to the beach too and saw the emus, deer and ostrich on the way. The peacocks put on a great display especially the white ones, but... More

This has really gone downhill since last time we came.the main animals we saw were kangaroos, tassie devils, wombats and birds. The lady feeding the Tassie Devils was quite rude to our friend which was uncalled for. The best part of here was the food which was very well priced.
