  • Loved it. Have been there a couple of times. Normally tend to bring visitors here so they can see the Tasmanian Devils up close. Don't forget to take a look at Maria the Tasmanian Devil, she's the cutest devil in the park. Great place to interact with and feed the roos, and has a number of Australian mammals and birds. Also has a one way glass vet hospital, where you can watch animals being treated live, but sadly (or rather, thankfully) I have never seen it in action. Pricing is alright, but offering student/group discounts, more pricing options and a little more advertising would benefit them greatly.
  • Beautiful sanctuary with amazing staff. Great informative talks and the ability to get close to native animals. Easy parking, a gift shop plus a food hut with all vegan friendly options. Highly recommend worth the time and money to visit.
