Was great to see the devils up close in the day time. Good range of animals. Staff were helpful. Birds and kangaroos roaming about the open areas.

The staff here are so passionate about conserving the incredibly unique wildlife. The Tasmanian are incredible to see so many of an endangered and severely threatened species. They educate as well as entertain. You can feed the wallabies and kangaroos and pat a wombat. I was extremely lucky to be able to feed a baby wombat. A highlight of my... More

There were not a great deal of animals but the the ones that were they were friendly and well cared for. The small children with us thoroughly enjoyed patting them and feeding them. Then we had lunch outside whilst the kids played on the play equipment. Had a great day.

Hands down, one of the best laid out parks/rehabilitation centres/zoos to see native australian wildlife in an open air environment. The kangaroos freely roam the grounds and love to be fed!. The enclosures for devils, wombats, snakes, ostriches and emus are large and very open which provides good viewing. This reserve stretches for many miles and you can easily spend... More

Seriously this is a must do in Bicheno !! We arrived at 10am and didn't leave till nearly close!!... It was so nice to visit a sanctuary rather than a zoo. Just knowing that alot of the animals get cared for and then rehabilitated is just great. When we where there we had an English Guide (Nathan ) Who was... More

We were very pleased to have visited the East Coast Natureworld. At first we wondered what it would be like but it was larger than we had imagined, with great, flat walking (good for people in wheelchairs, etc). The animals and birds are well looked after and the staff seem passionate about their work and show it with their enthusiastic... More

When walking into the park we weren't really sure what to expect, but upon walking around the whole park we were very impressed not only at it's size but all at how the Natureworld staff obviously care about the animals. The information hut on the Tasmanian Devils was fun and interactive and we were disappointed that we couldn't stay around... More

The Natureworld north of Bicheno is definitely worth visiting. We had actually managed to see most of the animals displayed there in the wild while doing the various walks all over the island, but we never encountered a Tasmanian Devil, so this was a good chance to see it. We were in time for one of the Devil feeding sessions... More

Had fun mingling with the kangaroos! Learning more about the Tasmanian Devils and wombats! Many close encounters with animals. Your visit will help to fund the rescue of Tasmanian Devils and other wildlife!

We went, not expecting to spend much time here, but were surprised at the various attractions. First - the lunch - the best homemade hamburger I've had for ages. Then a varied collection of animals, reptiles and birds. We had missed the Tassie Devils feeding so they were asleep but enjoyed the wallabies, wombats, emus and ostrich etc. We walked... More
