Overview

The world's first Unzoo project is located at Taranna, Tasmania, about one hour from Hobart and 10kms before Port Arthur. The Unzoo is an innovative and holistic wildlife experience dedicated to showing you the unique animals and plants of Tasmania while taking a lead role in preserving the critically endangered Tasmanian devil. Join our guided wildlife encounters and come face to face with our famous devils and endemic quolls, pademelons, rosellas, kangaroos, possums, frogmouths and birds of prey. More than two km of trails take you through the Tasmanian Native Botanic Garden from tall tree forest to the Norfolk Bay seaside. The principle of the Unzoo is to immerse you in our natural environment so, for instance, we have removed our boundary fences so the local wild animals can come and go as they please. Allow two hours for your visit or add an hour for a 4WD research and conservation adventure to see how we are managing the last safe wild Tasmanian devils on Earth. The Unzoo is open every day (except 25 Dec) from 9am. We schedule our wildlife encounters each half hour or so, that's 15 every day.

This really is a quick stop on the way to Port Arthur. Nothing really to see they have a couple of Tassie devils to see and a couple of Qalls and some kangaroos. The walk is very short and a little difficult to understand the...More

This is a wonderful (and close-up) way to see the endangered Tasmanian Devils. The park has several feeding times for multiple Devil habitations, making it easier to see the Devils fed throughout the day (a truly remarkable experience). The park also has a kangaroo habitation,...More

No, it is just like a regular Zoo. You can turn up and just stroll through. I do recommend going in the afternoon as they seemed to be when the feeding of animals occurred and when the birdshot was on. As for price, we had a... More
