Fabulous wildlife experience. Small group of appx 20 x3 daily to visit at feeding time. Knowledgeable staff, worth going, important place for ensuring healthy Tasmanian devils survive the facial tumour disease that is drastically reducing their numbers. Shares the work with Trowunna Wildlife park. see TD's and quolls up close. Fascinating. Good gift shop and not overpriced.

Great to see so many devils and learn about the conservation program. Very informative and definitely worth a visit.

It is possible to walk around the sanctuary on your own during the day but if you can I would recommend the tour by a keeper. The park is small with various enclosures of Tasmanian Devils and quolls. Although there are written signs telling you what is in the enclosures, I think you get much more out of the experience... More

Worth the money to see feeding time & listen to the informative guide talking about Tasmania's native animals. the only negative is that the groups are far too big & viewing at certain cages was very difficult at times.

Interesting spot to visit. Staff very knowledeable and caring about the animals. The devils and quolls are fascinating crearures. Did the twighlight feeding show and you can see how the devils got their name. Hungry and vocacious little critters.

The facility was a really good introduction to Devils and quolls for the kids (aged 8, 11 and 12) and gave them an appreciation of the challenges facing these species. I felt the session seemed padded out to fill in an hour. We really could have had a shorter session. Staff were knowledgeable and clearly caring towards the animals although... More

Called in to check this place out as we were driving past. Paid entry and went on a guided tour. Information video and guide were very educational. Best part was seeing tassie devils and two varieties of quoll in a fairly natural environment.

We went to the evening feed and loved it. Not only did we learn heaps about the Tassie Devils and quolls but felt better knowing we were contributing to their survival. Our guide explained all about them and the dangers facing them but also answered all our questions while talking over the screaming squabbles of these little animals. The feeding... More

Convenient for observing Tasmania devils if you are visiting Cradle Mountain and haven't seen the devils. Go about 30 minutes before the feeding do you can photograph the interaction between the devils before the feeding starts because once it does, it's all about fighting for the food. This sanctuary emphasizes education along with devil feeding. The total event is an... More
