The feeding times were are an excellent interactive experience to learn about quolls, Tasmanian devils etc. Chris was very knowledgable and passionate about the animals. Had an opportunity to pat a baby wombat. Recommend buying the food to feed the kangaroos who are free to roam around. Worth visiting if you're in the area.

I'm glad I got to visit. if you are visiting this side of Tassie then come here, if you are going to cradle mountain then visit the reserve in mole creek.
I got to hand feed kangaroos and wallabies. and I saw some adorable wombats and the feeding of the Tassie devil is cool and interesting. I think the feeding was about half an hour and I spent about 1.5 hours total there. Drive slower once the sun sets, or you will hit wildlife, I avoided everything that ran out in front of me. 1 Tassie devil and 1 kangaroo.

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.
