As a couple in our mid-thirties, we weren't really sure how much we would enjoy East Coast Nature World. However, we wanted to see kangaroos and tasmanian devils up close so decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised by this place. Lots of kangaroos, wallabies, and birds to feed. Even a couple of beautiful peacocks. All the animals were pretty tame and would eat right out of your hand.

Loved seeing the tasmanian devils up close too!

There were only about 10 other people there at the same time as us...not sure how it would be if the place was packed with tourists.

We tend to head to an animal park whenever on vacation. Why? I don't know, but this one could be better. There's lots if space, but its mostly about the Devils and Wallabys and not much else. Also disappointing to see so many of the pens in disrepair with their water features not working.

The animals were also looking for handouts indicating they are accustomed to being fed by visitors even though the signs point out the food is only for the free range birds and roos. This annoyed me but I'm sure the kids will love it.

This has been our best experience in Tassie so far. A great few hours spent here seeing animals such as Devils, quolls, wombats, possums, as well as many beautiful birds, reptiles & wallabies. The guys & gals who work here in Natureworld are friendly & knowledgeable, & we had a great time seeing the feeding of Devils, & also the nocturnals. We advise any visitors to get there by 10.30 am to see the first of the feeds, or check to see the other times. It's a great experience.
We just adored Whitney the Wombat too, & were lucky to see a tiny baby wombat, rescued from a road accident, being bottle fed by the staff. Mum quoll & two of her 5 babies were good enough to pop out of their house to share a fish & allow us to take some great snapshots. i actually had never heard of a quoll..now I have a new word for Scrabble! The small cafe there is good too! Egg& bacon muffin?..better than Devil food.
Thanks to you all for making our visit to Natureworld at Bicheno so enjoyable...

Set amongst 150 acres of natural parkland and lagoons. This is the perfect place to experience Tasmania's unique animals, birds, reptiles. Operating for over thirty years, Natureworld offers a more intimate, interactive, and ultimately enjoyable experience with Tasmanian wildlife. Originally a birdlife park, Natureworld has evolved into a nature world, where Tasmanian wildlife, birdlife and flora can be seen and appreciated by all. With 150 acres of forest, lagoon and beach frontage the extensive park grounds allow you to wander around at your own leisure. Wheel chair & pram friendly paths allow all to experience the uniqueness of Tasmania up close. There is food and drink served for most of the day in the Gallery Cafe. For the wildlife photography enthusiast there is an extensive display of Tasmanian wildlife photography. The shop has a wide range of souvenirs with a wildlife and Tasmania theme.
Your experience begins as you are greeted by two very chatty Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and an amazing view of the lagoon.

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! :-).
