Discover unique Tasmanian plants and wildlife habitat in the Tasmanian Native Botanic Garden.
At Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, our extensive, 10-hectare former farm has been restored and redesigned as the extraordinary Tasmanian Native Botanic Garden and wildlife habitat.
Over the last 35 years, we have nurtured the evolution of this land from native forest to farmland to a regenerated landscape that represents the diversity of Tasmanian flora and has created a restored habitat for our resident animals and local wildlife. This represents the very essence of our Unzoo experience.
Tasmania has more plant species than the British Isles and we estimate that more than 200 species of plants are growing at Tasmanian Devil Unzoo. With the help of our expert botanist Fred Duncan, and nurseryman Les Payne we have formally identified 150 species so far—that’s 150 fascinating plant stories that we’re ready to share with you.
Take time to explore our two kilometres of bushland and garden trails, encounter rare and endangered native plants and discover the story of Tasmania’s endemic flora. See plants found nowhere else on earth, learn about Tasmanian bush foods, encounter wildlife and experience the beauty and diversity of Tasmanian plants, from tiny, delicate native orchids to towering forest trees and waterfront marshlands.
