A clean, natural park for animals both orphaned and parented. Informative commentary on the devils past and future, and character traits. It was fun to watch the golden possum, bettong, and quoll happily feeding and resting in there quarters! A really pleasant place to mingle up close with the kangas, great baron geese, goat, white peacocks, swans and chicks! and birds in cages. Being able to feed the free ranging animals was a great joy! It was good to see that all the animals were in top condition, and getting on well together! Cafe was a nice set up, the seating area has lovely animal photography photos displayed. Food was good and service was polite! Will be taking another visit for sure! :-).

We spent an interesting couple of hours touring this facility. It was great to see the devils and watch them interact when being fed - I sure wouldn't want to be in the middle of them! The roos are lounging about the grounds and you can get right up to them (just watch as they will pobably be expecting some food from you). There are also wallabies, snakes and a variety of birds. Definitely worth the visit.

Seemed like a park run by animal lovers and conservationists who kindly allow the public the opportunity to see and interact with the animals. Not a big corporation run money making machine like other zoos. Simply a great collection of kangaroos, wallabies, devils, birds etc. where you can get up close and personal in a relaxed setting.
Fortunately like an old style park where you are really amongst the animals and not watching them behind huge barriers or glass. Would be an excellent place to take kids.

Definitely worth the visit.

Very fortunate to see the Tassie devils being fed. To hear the growls was excellent. Speaking to one of the staff I found out that it was a family run business. I hope it continues for a long time to come. A fantastic way to spend a few hours.
