We've been waiting to see a Tasmanian Devil since we arrived here. We definitely recommend Trowunna Wildlife Park. We called a number of places but they were either too far, too expensive or time limiting. Trowunna was perfect, it was affordable, we didn't need to book in advance and we were welcome to wander the grounds as long as we... More

I decided to make a trip to Trowunna to tick off seeing a Tasmanian Devil. Turns out I had the most amazing time, probably one of the best things I've ever done. First of all I encountered the herd of kangaroo, who just roam around and are super friendly. You can get some feed and they quite happily eat from... More

Great for kids and tourists to get up close to local wildlife. Cuddle a wombat, watch the devils feeding. Feed the wallabies by hand. They have upgraded enclosures since we were last here over 10 years ago and are constantly improving. Kids would love this place.

This was one of the first places we visited after arriving on the Spirit in Devonport. With over 30 devils onsite it was fantastic to see the work the park is doing to contribute to the Save the Devil program. The highlight was actually getting to pat a devil! The park has all native animals and is very well maintained.... More

It's not a massive Park but there's heaps of animals of different animals to see, make sure you do the tour so that you get to cuddle a Wombat and watch the Tassie Devil's get fed.

I live in Mole Creek, but never fail to take any visitors we have there. Last time I got to hug a wombat! The animals are housed outside with shelters, & the guides are very knowledgeable, especially Paul & his quolls.

We came across this park by chance, and we're so glad we stopped by. We were just in time for the devils feeding and the tour guide (who I unfortunately didn't get the name of) was really informative, and I loved the story of how Tasmanian Devils got their name. We also got to stroke a wombat, and feed kangaroos... More
