One thing we really wanted to see on our first visit to Tasmania, was to see devils feeding. We were so pleased to be able to see this happening and listen to them arguing over their food! The guide was knowledgeable and happy to answer...More

Fantastic name and philosophy of the Unzoo. I have always wanted to see a Tasmanian Devil up close in their natural surrounding. This is the best opportunity to do so to appreciate this type of marsupial mammal. Our guide Suz was brilliant with information about...More

Our small family, 2 adults and a 4 year old loved this attraction! We are not big fans of zoos and prefer nature to cages. We felt attracted to the philosophy of the unzoo and were not disappointed. I highly recommend you are there for...More

We liked the large open enclosures. The animals seem to be well looked after and enjoy their surroundings. We saw 4 Tasmanian devils, loads of kangaroos, 2 rosellas, and albino possum, and on the walk near the waterfront - an echidna and the back end...More

Not worth the price of admission. Saw 2 devils and a few kangaroos. Felt very tired. Assume there are better options around

Extremely overpriced for what it actually is. A group of 8 of us paid $165 and left very underwhelmed. All we saw was one possum, 1 rosella, 2 devils and kangaroos. We were expecting many many more animals to reflect the hefty admission fee. Very...More

Really enjoying the devil show which was informative and very interesting. Tickets aren’t cheap but the money is vital to the devil’s survival in the area.

8-day Hobart to Launceston Self-drive Itinerary (5 Replies)
Hi guys, We are a party of 4 (2 adults + 2 kids) visiting Tassie for the first time in early December. We are thinking of flying in to Hobart and out from Launceston. After poring through the numerous related posts on this forum, I have come up with an itinerary of my own. I am sometimes prone to the fallacy of trying to do too much, so opinions and advice are very much appreciated. Day 1 : Arrive in Hobart by afternoon. As we would be arriving after a long flight from Singapore, the...More

It looks like a good plan. Perhaps the best time to see the Bay of Fires beach near St Helens is as a day trip on Day 7.

What do you think about my itinerary (10 days)? (2 Replies)
Me and my wife are planning to go next March for 10 days. Obviously we will be hiring a car. This is based on my research from the forum so far: Day 1 - Arrived in Launceston in the morning from Sydney - Evandale - Cataract Gorge - Stay in Launceston Day 2 - Liffey Falls - Cradle Mountain - Stay in Launceston Day 3 - Freycinet National Park - 2 hour Freycinet ATV adventure - Stay in Swansea Day 4 - Eaglehawk Neck - Port Arthur Historic Site - Stay in Port Arthur ...More

Liffey Falls is more or less in the direction of Cradle Mountain, but I think it adds too much to what will be a very busy day anyway. It will take about five hours to get to Cradle Mountain and back. Liffey Falls could add about two hours to your day. Do you have anything planned to do at Cradle Mountain? Apart from that, it's quite a good plan.

It will take a minimum of 3.5 hours to drive from Devonport to Hobart. Plan to visit places along the way on the Heritage Highway and make a full day of it. If you have been to Bonorong, the Unzoo is an anti-climax. Go to Port Arthur. You cannot see anything unless you pay to enter. It's well worthwhile. You can save a lot of time on the east coast. When you get back from Maria Island, drive to Bicheno and do the penguin tour (which is only in the evening. Next day go to freycinet and...More
