The world's first Unzoo project is located at Taranna, Tasmania, about one hour from Hobart and 10kms before Port Arthur. The Unzoo is an innovative and holistic wildlife experience dedicated to showing you the unique animals and plants of Tasmania while taking a lead role in preserving the critically endangered Tasmanian devil. Join our guided wildlife encounters and come face to face with our famous devils and endemic quolls, pademelons, rosellas, kangaroos, possums, frogmouths and birds of prey. More than two km of trails take you through the Tasmanian Native Botanic Garden from tall tree forest to the Norfolk Bay seaside. The principle of the Unzoo is to immerse you in our natural environment so, for instance, we have removed our boundary fences so the local wild animals can come and go as they please. Allow two hours for your visit or add an hour for a 4WD research and conservation adventure to see how we are managing the last safe wild Tasmanian devils on Earth. The Unzoo is open every day (except 25 Dec) from 9am. We schedule our wildlife encounters each half hour or so, that's 15 every day.

Entry was $35 and is located on the way to Port Arthur, well sign posted. Great little park where we could see the many Tasmanian devils in big enclosures. All of them we could see close up and we also saw a feeding session which...More

There are 4 Tasmanian Devil exhibits. One has a unique dome in the middle of the enclosure in order for the viewer to climb through a short tunnel and come up in the middle of the Devil Area. Plenty of opportunity for feeding of the...More

My mom and I stumbled upon the unzoo on the way to Port Arthur and were lucky enough to get inside during the bird show and the quoll feeding time. As neither of us enjoy zoo's and caged animals, the unzoo felt less like captivity...More

This is a wonderful (and close-up) way to see the endangered Tasmanian Devils. The park has several feeding times for multiple Devil habitations, making it easier to see the Devils fed throughout the day (a truly remarkable experience). The park also has a kangaroo habitation,...More

What a beautiful day we spent at the Tassie devil conservation reserve "Un-Zoo". Nice to see that Tassie residents only pay once visit and can come as many times as we want during the year, makes bringing our visitors worthwhile. The whole place is great...More

No, it is just like a regular Zoo. You can turn up and just stroll through. I do recommend going in the afternoon as they seemed to be when the feeding of animals occurred and when the birdshot was on. As for price, we had a... More
