Drive about 18 kilometres west of Launceston to find this family run, privately owned menagerie set on 50 acres of natural bush, which opened in 2003 and now exhibits over 100 different species, the largest collection of rare, exotic and native species in Tasmania.
Among the native animals, you will see possums to gliders, wombats to echidnas, devils to penguins and kangaroos to reptiles. Hand feed the wallabies, wombats and kangaroos, or the domestic sheep and cattle, goats, alpacas or miniature donkey.
Further species include freshwater crocodile, American alligator, cassowary, ring-tailed lemur and the world’s largest rodent, the capybara.
Don’t miss the daily feedings with Tasmanian devils, little blue penguins and meerkats.
The zoo is dedicated to wildlife conservation and community education, while also caring for injured and orphaned local wildlife.
