You must go during the feeding times. The devils love to hide and will generally come out for feeding times. We went on a very hot day and the devils even went into the water to cool down.

Also the wombats can be a little lazy. If you get the right person to show you around you can pat the wombat.

The baby emu's were great to see.

They have a kids playground that is at the far end of the park. I could not understand why this was built so far away from the main building where they serve food.

If we had not stayed for the feeding times then it would have been have got a poor rating rather than average.

Spent a lovely couple of hours at nature world, arrived a bit late for the devil talk, but just in time to pet a baby wombat! The siting of the nature park was lovely with a great birdie/nature walk and view out over the lagoon. Spent a long time making friends with the wallabies and kangaroos. If you're anything like me buy a couple of bags of feed at the start! Staff were very friendly and informative and the animals and their joeys were lovely. Highly recommend if you wish to see some of the locals up close. Happy way to spend some time!

There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere here. The animals are obviously happy and cared for and the park itself is lovely to roam around and enjoy the natural bush and beautiful view of the lagoon..

The meals in the cafe are well presented and very tasty, and staff make a real effort to ensure your visit is enjoyable...

It was amazing to see the Tasmanian Devils and watch them being fed. The highlight to me was the friendly birds, some even saying hello ! The kangaroos are friendly and you can hand feed them which was a great experience...

Overall a great place for all animal and nature lovers....

We visited this park with our son. The lady at the counter wasn't overly friendly but once we got in we saw a variety of free ranging animals including kangaroos, ducks and ducklings, peacocks, birds, hens and chickens/roosters. There is a walk through aviary with birds, a farm animal section, snakes and you can feed any of the free ranging animals. We watched the devil feeding and got to pat a wombat. Lovely views of the lagoon from the park too.

An excellent park that contains most of the Australian animals and birds which you can touch and feed. The animals look very healthy and happy which says a lot about their environment and the owners and staff that look after them. A lovely location by the lake where I saw many wild birds. There is also a nice little gift shop and cafe that makes delicious pancakes too.
A must for anyone visiting the East Coast of Bicheno.
