“Really disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I was really disappointed that there weren't more of a range of animals. It wasn't worth the $25 entry fee. The advertising was misleading and saying they are the best zoo in tasmania. Makes me not want to visit any other zoo here

“Up close and personal :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Awesome! This place is about one twentieth the size of Melbourne Zoo, but you actually get to see every animal in the park. You can get right up to the enclosures and most animals will walk up to you and greet you. The Kangaroos and Emus ate feed right out of our cups, which is made available and affordable as you enter the park. Lots of monkeys, most which are cheeky enough to come right up to you. Even the Tassy Devils come up to say hello and they have the cutest little echidna I've ever seen! :-)

“Great authentic zoo!”

Proper authentic zoo. Great to see the Devils out and about, not just hiding in corners. Great range of animals and really got the full experience!

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Today we visited Tasmania Zoo for the first but definitely not the last time. What a credit to the owners and staff. A truly wonderful interactive animal experience. The staff are very friendly and very knowledgable about all the exhibits. The animals all have lovely habitats and are very inquisitive. Both my children loved the exhibits. We didn't have time to stay for the animal feelings or the dinosaur walk but we will be back to experience
these next visit. How lucky are we to have something like this in Tassie. A place that will not disappoint make sure you make time for this!
