We visited today and had a great 3 or 4 hours seeing the animals and learning more about how they live. Awesome rehabilitation programs with much care and passion. Ned was awesome as a keeper and a carer. Thanks team.

If patting a wombat, tickling a Tasmanian devil or feeding a kangaroo is something you want to do then Trowunna Wildlife Sanctuary is a must visit destination in Mole Creek. Interactive tours (included in the entry price) are conducted several times a day by very...More

The reserve allows access to tasmanian devils, kangaroos and quolls under supervision. Unlike a private for profit zoo, they are an animal rescue faculty. They are also heavily involved in dealing with the cancer that has threatened the tasmanian devils.

Visited this place with my family. Highlight of our visit is getting to touch the wombat . Tried to spot some other animals during the day but no luck. I guess they are nocturnal. Saw some tasmanian devil, kangaroo and goose.

The sanctuary does important work rehabilitating orphaned or injured animals. They also have a backup stock of Tassie Devils when it was expected to go extinct from disease. The tours start at 1 and 3pm and we’re really informative about the wombat, quolls and devils....More
