Overview

Devils in the dark showcases the iconic Tasmanian devil at night.This amazing animal can be seen at many parks and zoos but the opportunity to see this nocturnal animal come to life after dark in an as wild as possible setting is very special and unique. Devils in the dark was established by a wildlife expert with 30 years of experience viewing Tasmanian devils in the wild places of Tasmania.

Even after seeing Devils up close at a wildlife park, this was a fascinating and very educational experience watching wild Devil behaviour in a comfortable environment.

We booked this tour as soon as we heard about it and i am so glad we did! The tour guide, Leon, was extremely knowledgeable and obviously passionate about the Tasmanian Devil. We spent a significant amount of time watching the animals feed and interacting...More

My wife and I found this very interesting.The guide had an extensive knowledge of these mis understood creatures, and gave an extensive commentary. The viewing, which did involve some patient waiting, was improved by complementary cheese and biscuits, and the choice of a glass of...More

This is an incredible way to observe the nocturnal Tasmanian devil in its natural state. The night-time tour involves being in a hide only a few metres away from the feeding zone. We were able to see several devils devouring their food, whilst Leon our...More
