There was a huge range of animals, ranging from the Tasmanian Devils to Kangaroos! AUD$25 for Adult, and AUD$12 for Children (Below 15). A pretty reasonable price for an entry to such a beautiful sanctuary! A pack of food can also be bought at a cheap price of AUD$1. The guides and keepers were friendly, and were also able to provide much information about these animals. Most of these animals, however, have a sad past. By putting these animals here, these animals hae a safe place to live. Sadly, this is privately owned and does not have any support from the government. If they had some funding from the Tasmanian Government, this place would be much better financially. Overall, it was a good visit, and a excellent experience!

There were many animals in the natureworld and feeding the free-roaming animals had no issues at all because they were all tame and friendly animals. The best part of the visit was the interactive and informative feeding sessions that were conducted by the personnels from the Natureworld. Highly recommended!

Healthy animals as far as I could tell. Friendly staff with lots of knowledge which they share generously. A good opportunity to see tassie animals up close. A sanctuary with good intentions for the wildlife.

I intended spending 1,5h there but ended up staying 2,5h and if they hadn't closed I wold probably still be there. The only negative is that they encourage you to buy food to feed the animal but the animals has become a bit to greedy and almost chase you in their hunt for lolly. I even got bitten by a black swan, a bit funny but still....!

My husband and I visited today.
We saw heaps of animals and got to pat a wombat, sugar glider and kangaroos. Really knowledgable keepers! Great place that needs the publics support! Receptionist wasn't the happiest person in the world though.
