Went out here with my nanna. It is lovely and quiet and situated in the grassy slopes of country Tasmania. It's a couple of hours well spent. Informative talks and furry little critters of all types to pat, feed and observe. What's not to like? Park fees are reasonable and look after the gorgeous creatures calling it home. If you, like most love your animals as well as spying a Tasmanian devil or two it's worth the trip which is also full of gorgeous scenery.
