This fantastic facility is a great experience to get up-close-and-personal with some of Tasmania's wildlife! Time your visit to coincide with the interpretive guide that will walk you through parts of the park! The young woman was inexperienced, but still very informative and well-spoken. We were shown and told about wombats, eastern quolls and then the star of the show: the Tasmanian Devil. There were 2 young ones when we visited.
The Devil Feeding was the highlight of our visit to Trowunna! 7 adult devils gorged themselves on half of a walloby in a fast-paced, vicious-sounding, exciting feeding frenzy! Words don't do justice to the sounds that we heard: Snarling, Screaming, Whinning, Crying, and the Crunching of bones! The Alpha would often chase other devils away!
The fenced-in pens surrounding the devils could use a little improvement, but overall, the facilities seem adequate for the rehabilitation, research and breeding programs that take place on-site.
Other wildlife that can be seen here include: the previously mentioned wombats and quolls, as well as wallabies and kangaroos.
