Welcome to the “Unzoo” of the future, a new style of wildlife experience where you’ll discover the unique animals and plants of Tasmania!
Come face to face with Tasmanian devils, join interesting devil presentations every hour or so and learn how we are saving the last isolated, natural population of endangered devils left in the world.
You can hand feed friendly kangaroos, meet endemic quolls and noisy wattlebirds and laugh at cheeky little parrots in our Birds of the Bush encounter.
So what is an Unzoo?
For us it is an experiment to change our 40 year old family animal park into a ground-breaking “zoo without cages”.
Wild wallabies, echidnas, possums, native fish and wild parrots and 100 other bird species now live around the Unzoo bush garden.
To best discover these wonderful creatures we suggest you join one of our expert guides on a nature walk through the bush.
Above all, though, our real focus is to help preserve the Tasmanian devil. Your entrance fees fund this effort.
We are open every day (except 25 December) at Taranna, about one-hour from Hobart on the way to Port Arthur on Tasman Peninsula.
We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
