A nice intimate zoo where lots of animals roam freely and are happy, healthy and friendly! The devil feeding was really entertaining, awesome watching them play tug of war with a possums tail and watching them chase eachother round the enclosure.

Natureworld is not a zoo where animals are just the center of attention (that said, I like zoos) much more, it is a place where they look for injured animals until they can go back to nature so all animals have their own history. We arrived for the 10am feeding. It is worth the 25 dollars for adults and 12... More

I've been to a number of wildlife places over the past couple of months, and this was by far the best! The guided tour - included with entry - is a must. The young keepers know so much about the animals and make a point of showing off each animal to the group - no touching unless you're told it's... More

Called in here on the way into Bicheno. We saw the feeding of the bandicoot, then the Sugar Gliders and Ringtailed Possums. The highlight was definitely the feeding of the Tasmanian Devils, with a very informative talk about the various breeding programs and the Devil Facial Tumours. This is a private venue doing a massive amount to support the rehabilitation... More

Great fun for the family - the highlight for the family was feeding kangaroos around the park and watching the Tasmanian Devils being fed. The park ranger (Christopher) feeding the Tasmanian Devils was passionate and very informative on the Tasmanian Devils and definitely added to the feeding. A walk around

Had an enjoyable visit yesterday. Rangers allow kids to touch and feed the animals. The playground was a good touch too.

Apparently this is a sanctuary and breeding facility though some aspects felt a bit more like a zoo. Most animals have been brought in for recovery following an injury though I did note that there was both an echidna and a wombat trying to burrow their way out of enclosures. The tassie devil feeding is the highlight of your visit... More

This was unexpectedly good! I loved that you could roam through the expansive layout with the family and feed all the different types of birds with a bag of feed that you only pay an extra $1 for. Although a lot of the animals are nocturnal, we were still able to see a fair few of the animals. I would... More
