Come face-to-face with Tasmania’s incredible wild native animals


Meet our friendly resident wildlife


Come face-to-face with our Tasmanian devils in four unique habitat areas, and have a nose-to-nose encounter with a devil in our innovative Devil Den. See brushtail possums, hand feed our gentle wallabies, kangaroos and pademelons as you wander over two kilometres of nature trails, using our self-guided map and bird and animal checklists.

We strongly recommend that you join our expert guides at one of our regular devil feeding presentations and also on a guided nature walk when they literally bring the bush alive with the wild creatures that live around the Unzoo. Keep watch for foraging echidnas, bandicoots, wombats or the elusive antechinus.


Our birds are special too. The Birds of the Bush presentation offers a chance to hand feed wild parrots and honeyeaters while around the Unzoo we have identified nearly 100 species (about 10 per cent of Australia’s bird species) on the property.


Our bird checklist will help you identify tiny scarlet robins and blue wrens, sea eagles, beautiful fire-tail finches and endemic honeyeaters while at our Norfolk Bay Waterfront viewing platform we provide binoculars to spot wild water birds, including sea eagles, pelicans and egrets, terns, black swans and gulls.


A fern-lined stream runs through the Unzoo that is home to Tasmanian native fish called galaxias, freshwater lobsters (also known as yabbies) and wild eels.


Keep an eye out too for our special nesting boxes where wild ring-tailed possums often pop out for a peep.


Ask at reception for bird and plant checklists, and our Let’s do the Unzoo adventure guide and questionnaire, designed especially for children.
