  • We adored our time here, it's wonderful to support an organisation that is doing so much to preserve the beautiful animals that are special to Tasmania but the up close encounters and information...

  • Our family thoroughly enjoyed this visit. We got there in time to join a tour midway through and were able to see the Tassie Devil’s getting fed. The young guy that led the tour is clearly...

  • My two children (15 and 9) and I visited today. We followed the 1pm tour and enjoyed learning about some of the animals. The tour was the perfect amount of time, not to long and not to short. The sanctuary was really open (free roaming animals and the ones secured away for safety). The kangaroos were the fan favourite for my children and I but I also loved the Tasmanian devils. They weren't hiding away and we could get up and close (safely) to them. I feel it is the perfect environment for if one needs to relax and enjoy the surroundings and animals - there is seating to do so. A calming environment and the staff are really friendly. Highly recommend a visit. Suited for all ages.
  • Great sanctuary doing great work with the devils and other native species. Definitely worth a visit. Totally relying on visitors with no government funding. Is a must stop. Worth supporting. Dean gave us a tour and is a great asset to the sanctuary. Very knowledgeable.
