Absolutely loved this place! Did the feeding tours, the guides were so informative and kept it interesting! The enclosures are impressive and the animals interactive and beautiful. Had a light lunch and coffee there and was not disappointed! The kids were happy too. Extremely friendly staff and you can really tell they adore the animals they care for and love their jobs. Thoroughly impressed!

We had a great time at this park. It was relatively quiet when we visited with only a handful of other people there. And when they are dispersed throughout this huge attraction, you really feel like you have the place to yourself!

We enjoyed attending the feeding sessions and learning more about the animals from the knowledgable guide (I'd highly recommend the Tasmanian Devil feeding session). There is also plenty of sign-posted information on the animals throughout the park.

The animals at the zoo seem healthy and content - most are kept in large, open-air enclosures and some are also free to roam the park. Those that are left to roam free can be hand-fed food which is purchased at the entrance.

I would recommend allowing 2-3 hours to visit this attraction.

We came here with a toddler and 2 young children and we all loved it. Keepers were informative and friendly, even accomodating when taking photos. While the cafe had their winter menu of toasted sandwiches and chips and other like food, we were very content after coming in from the cold. We saw kangaroos, swans, various types of birds and of course tassie devils and wombats.

We came here on a whim and decided to pay $15/person + 3 feed bags ($1 each) to enter.

The place is full of free roaming wallabies and birds and you can feed them with the feed bags, the wallabies will just eat off your hand!

There are also a bunch of animals in enclosures including sugar gliders (nocturnal house), wombats, quolls and best of all the tasmanian devils.

The zookeeprs are incredibly friendly and helpful and gave us alot of insight into these animals.

If you love animals, definitely come here!

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!
