This nature park is small and can be easily covered in half a day. I suggest slowing down and spending the time to really observe the animals and to take in and enjoy all the little walks they have around the grounds. The fauna is amazing and I really enjoyed really the dedication plaques they had amongst the bushes.

I first visited this park in 2011 and found in my recent visit that there were a lot less animals and there seemed to be a lot less attention to detail with maintenance let go. I did not feel like I got my dollar value on this second visit

A rather tacky place, probably due to off-season. But, we found the place to ourselves and enjoyed the peace and calmness. The lady was definitely an expert, probably an scientist on the subject. Her expertise was fittingly coupled with her passion for the animals. Had a great time watching the devil, wombats and many other nocturnal creatures of Tasmania and... More

I really wanted to see Tasmanian Devils while in Tasmania. We were riding the motorbike around the island and found East Coast Natureworld on our ride. We weren't sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. We went on a weekday around 2pm and we had most of the park to ourselves which was awesome. We paid the extra money... More

Fantastic place! Well worth a visit if you're in Bicheno. The tasmanian devils talk was informative and we loved being able to feed the kangaroos. Really well run place.

We arrived to Nature World by car from Launceston: its a great scenic drive as is the one from here down to Hobart. The park is wonderful and a great bite-size introduction to the Aussie/Tassie wildlife. Staff is friendly and helpfull and cafe fare is great. The sea shore setting makes for a lovely background on a sunny day. Not... More

We stopped in at Natureworld on a whim and we are so glad we did. The zoo does a great job of working to help Tasmanian Devils and we learned so much about these gorgeous, intriguing, misunderstood little creatures. Keeper Vicki is clearly very passionate about caring for wildlife and she really loves the animals in her care. They get... More

Nature World is a lovely place to visit to see Tassie Devls and all sorts of animals. They are very well cared for and happy. Be careful when entering Old Mac Donald farm with food they will all come over and try to rip open your bag. Great place to visit with the kids and it would be nice if... More
