Whether you have children or not this is a MUST DO! Lived in Tasmania most of my life and this has to be the best Zoo/ Wildlife sanctuary in the state. Staff are friendly, helpful and informative. You can feed the wildlife literally from the palm of your hands all day. Regular and daily selective animal feeding times so you won't have to worry about missing out on seeing Tassie Devils up close.
Unlike so many nature-related tourist attractions found throughout the world, this is a true nature reserve, where the birds and animals are either rescued or the result of breeding programs aimed at bolstering dwindling natural populations. The intent is not primarily entertainment, but education and appreciation of these unique Tasmanian species. Be sure to follow the scheduled feedings, as the guide/feeder is highly knowledgeable about all the animals and takes time to answer questions and describe behaviours/habitats. The feeding times are the very best opportunity to see the animals, since many typically sleep in burrows or are hidden at other times. This attraction was a pleasant surprise and we'll worth spending a couple hours enjoying. Highly recommended.
