Visited this quiet little park about 7km out of Bicheno and was both surprised and disappointed. The staff at the service desk were both rude and grumpy as we had vouchers and she had to use a calculator to work things out. However we got...More

Our children enjoy feeding the kangaroos and geese. Great improvement with the wombats moving around to excite the little ones. The birds are exciting for little ones. It was also good to show children snakes so they know NOT what to touch.

We stumbled upon this place, delivering an injured native bird for care. We ended up staying for hours visiting the wonderful enclosures and witnessing feedings. We fed roaming kangaroos, geese, native hens and swans. Just lovely!!

Normally, I don't like going to places where animals are kept in enclosures, but I wanted to take overseas visitors to somewhere they could see Tasmanian devils. So off we went to this place, and we had a good time, watching Tasmanian devils, feeding kangaroos,...More

Definitely worth a visit. The sanctuary has some wildlife in large enclosures and others roaming free. You can get a feed bag for a buck and feed the roos and geese. The feedings are great, super cute, eye opening and very informative. Spare 2 hours.

Wow! After visiting 4 states in Australia, I can confidently say that this was my favourite animal sanctuary we visited. Even though it was the high season (summer, school break & Christmas), there were very few visitors, which allowed for a very personalized experience. Also,...More

Suitable for young children and also adults. The feeding sessions are a great way of learning about the local animals. Try to pick a cooler day or late afternoon as during the day most animals are hiding from the sun and sleeping so you can't...More

What a beautiful spot, animals look so well cared for. Loved the open spaces the animals can wander as they wish. Enjoyed our visit.

Hi, I would leave 2 hours to get the most from the park. We had three children (teenagers) and it was a highlight of our Tasmanian holiday, especially feeding the kangaroos and wallabies which they couldn't get enough of... More
