What an amazing experience. We had the opportunity to view 4 different Tasmanian Devils feeding from Geoff's viewing hut. The whole experience was fantastic, with pick up from accommodation to guided tour and food and drinks provided during the viewing (nearly 2 hrs of viewing time). Thoroughly recommend - Thanks Geoff!

Geoff's tour and sharing of his Devils knowledge was top notch. After doing the Pieman River Cruise in Corinna, and driving the Western Explorer highway to get to Arthur River, Geoff picked us up at our accommodation and the rest of the evening was one of our favourite things to do during our Tasmania visit. Seeing the Devils in their... More

We sought out this tour looking for an experience that was one-of-a-kind. Geoff’s tour certainly delivered, and was a highlight of our Tassie adventure. The tour takes place in a hut on Geoff’s property and, even before the devils arrive, offers wild views of the rugged and isolated northwest Tasmanian coast. Geoff is a warm and sociable host, and we... More

Brilliant tour. Geoff first took us on a short walk to Aboriginal sites before we were taken to a little hut with a large viewing window where we were able to observeTasmanian devils and a wombat close-up in the wild at night as they fed. There is a portable toilet on site. Lovely snack food, tea and coffee and wine... More

Jeff is a first rate story-teller, guide and advocate for Tasmanian Devils. Don't sign up unless you are prepared for a very personal, no holds barred devil experience- we viewed the devils in their own environment, growling and chomping away on road kill. Fascinating. Jeff is careful not allow the devils to become dependent on visiting his viewing station. There... More

Geoff King is a top notch guide who shows more than just Devils feeding (which I saw two). Picks you up, teaches you about the land and culture in the area. Also makes some good snacks. Cares about his guest and the Tasmania Devils are awesome at such a natural place.
