We were suggested this place by a ranger at Freycinet National Park and it did not disappoint. Chris and Sarah the rangers were AMAZING, so knowledgeable, and we saw them almost the whole time we were there. The miserable lady on the entrance, not so amazing, but I digress. We had such an excellent time, saw so many animals - the devils were all out for a feed, the nocturnal feeding time was awesome. You could tell the animals were really cared for. I would only be wary of the geese that roam, they're very protective of their babes and are a bit aggressive. I think though that they are a testament to the park's excellence, they return every year to raise their young!
Many of the animals are rescues, so might not be as you imagine them - eg two injured Wedge Tailed Eagles, they're not flying around but they're outside, loved and cared for. We loved this park so much.

Small, authentic nature park. You can get up close to the animals and it is just lovely. The guided tour is a must or you won't see any animals. Our guide was great, he was so informative, but very engaging. Kiosk was not expensive for lunches and gifts. Wombat patting was great, devils were mischievous and sugar gliders, so cute. Highly recommend a visit.

It was a very educational visit where we got to see and learn about the Tasmanian Devil up close, almost within reach (but we don't want to do that, really), especially its undeserving bad reputation. In addition, we learnt about Australian / Tasmanian natives such as Esther the wombat, the Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle, hordes of free roaming wallabies and also fluffy Cape Barren geese.

We popped in for visit and absolutely loved it. Both guides today were great. In particular our male guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Would recommend this for anyone. Make sure you visit the deer at the back of the property.

Simple and unpretentious. My kids got to feed kangaroos, tickle a wombat, eyeball an emu and watch Tassie devils feeding. They loved it. The staff were very friendly too.
