What a fantastic little zoo, we loved our visit and would happily return! Took my young daughters and they loved the place and all the animals. I have been to Melbourne zoo a few times and must say really don't enjoy it, the last time we took the kids I stated I would be happy if I never came back... More

Visited the zoo to see some Tassie Devils which we did. They were active at the time and we observed them playing and chasing each other with easy viewing in a large vegetated area. I don't know if they are always that active. The Meerkats were interesting to watch as they always are. This is a privately run zoo with... More

Our grandchildren were visiting and I was looking forward to taking them to the zoo. What a disappointment! The place looked run down and staff couldn't be bothered to interact with the visitors. Many areas had no animals. Some enclosures contained animals, but they couldn't be seen. I visited this place four years ago and was impressed. It has changed... More

hat a fantastic place, wander around at your own pace, the animals were actually coming up to us at the fence. No crowds, well set out and the kids thoroughly enjoy the dinosaur park.

After hearing mixed reviews, we were surprised how amazing Tasmania Zoo is! The bird collection is extensive (the talking cockatoos were a favourite with the little ones), as well as monkeys, Australian animals, lions, reptiles ... the list goes on. The dinosaur swamp was excellent and our little man was so excited to walk through and find all the different... More

A great day out at Tasmania zoo, all the animals were very well cared for no the displays well done. The feedings were entertaining especially the meerkats and the Tassie devils encounter was a highlight for our grandson. All in all it was good value for money and presented an eclectic mix of animals for visitors to see and interact... More
