Thank you Cathy for the review. Yes, our animal food bills add up very quick, not to mention special dietary requirements for our exotic animals and babies that require bottle feeding. Glad you enjoyed your visit.

Family run park in beautiful Gunns Plains,Tasmania...not far from Burnie. 'Roos to hand feed, watch Tasmanian devils, wombats, wallaby, several bird species. Mostly native animals. Animals easily seen in their enclosures. Family friendly. Highlight was holding Tasmanian Devil orphan … so cute at that age!
