Although the centre is open all day, it is best to go at feeding time when you get a guided tour and a lot of additional info. Really interesting.

Tassie Devils and quolls have had a hard time and it is wonderful to see the work put in to save them, and understand more about their situation. The weather was not great for walking but perfect for visiting this centre. The staff were very knowledgeable and there are plenty of animals to see. People need to support these places... More

We were told the centre opened at 10am. We got there about 11.45 to see a sign 'back in 15 mins'. Like other people there, we decided not to wait. Presume you need to pay for the 'evening' session to see the animals.

Great experience, minimal cost, full of information, group size not to large around 20 people. The guide was passionate and very knowledgeable, be patient and wait until he finishes his speech, then you will plenty of time for one on one questions.

We were just participants of the 2030hr Devils @ Cradle night time feed - we would highly recommend this timeslot to see the Devils active, running around and interacting with one another - particularly very vocally! This tour was extremely formative providing you with endless amounts of information and facts about the Devils. We also viewed the tour guide feeding... More

We visited in mid Dec. It was great to see the devils and understand the program here. You will also get to see quolls and the occasional wallaby that wanders onto the premises. A visitor dropped his mobile phone into the devils compound and one devil had a field day with it. It was eventually retrieved by the guide. The... More

Not originally on our itinerary when visiting Cradle Mountain but so glad we decided to do it. We did the 5.30pm feeding session and if you can afford to do it, then see a feeding session. It was an experience I will never forget. Prior to the feeding session there is an opportunity to explore the park on your own... More

Amazing experience and although by this point we'd already seen Devils in both captivity and the wild it was still amazing to watch them feeding. We took the 8.30pm feed, so it was a little cool by then. They are fed in rotation so whenever you go you will always see some animals that are eager to be fed and... More

We visited for the 5:30 tour and devil feeding. There was a brief video inside to give a general history of Tasmania and the devils. Then we went outside to view the devils and quolls. There was also a wombat roaming around. Our guide Chris was excellent. His knowledge and passion for these animals is contagious. The feeding was eye... More
