It's worth going to see the tassie devil feeding, its educational and you know your helping the species out by contributing money to their conservation. Guide was well informed and made the session interesting and informative.

This is the best experience of seeing, hearing and observing devils at their best. Our guide was very informative and knew her stuff. Devils are best seen at night so the night tour is a must.

Hi there, Despite their fiesty reputation the devils are actually quite a timid animal. Whilst the ones in the facility are fairly used to people handling of the Tasmanian devils can be stressful for them, so we do not... More
