We headed here on a drizzly day as it was not beach weather and we had no regrets. We spent over three hours at Natureworld learning all about the Tasmanian Devils, in particular - who are wonderful animals and clearly very misunderstood. The focus here is on being a sanctuary and conservation of these creatures that are so important to... More

A great place to visit! Stopped here with an international guest. We grabbed coffees at the café then headed over to the Tassie Devil feeding time. Chris, you did a great job, was really informative and I learnt a lot!! My guest was much more interested in feeding the kangaroos and lots of photos of the joeys in the pouch!... More

We discovered East Coast Natureworld accidentally, while driving from Bicheno up the coast. The attraction is not listed in most of the booklets on Tasmania. Just 20 min north of Bicheno. Glad we stopped to check out! The best opportunity to watch Tasmanian Devil and other rare Australian animals. Highly recommend to anyone, especially when traveling with family.

Very well laid out and cared for. Be sure to take a walk through the bush land area where you will see fallow deer and lots of birdlife. The animal enclosures are easy to access with a large variety of animals, birds and reptiles. There were lots of Tasmanian Devils that looked very healthy and fit. The centre also takes... More

What a great place to visit to see Tassie wildlife and interactive feeding sessions are a must to understand them, especially the devils! Great conservation ideals, please visit everyone!

The park offers a great chance to see some interesting animals with really enthusiastic and helpful staff on hand to offer any explanation or information that may be required. The opportunity to see Tas Devils and other local wildlife close up was great. The park is all about the animals - really enjoyed our visit.

A bit pricey for what there is but the guides are knowledgable and entertaining. There are signs that are faded and need replacing but if you have kids they will love the kangaroos, tassie devils and wombats. Watch out for the goats they climb the rails.

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.
