At first the park hits you as expensive. $68 for a family of 3 kids and 2 adults ... for what seems like a very very small park with a few enclosures. But what makes it all worth it is the animal feedings ... which happen practically one after the other. But you HAVE to ge there before 1130 ...... More

this place has a selection of local Tasmanian wildlife to see. It is a very pleasant place to walk around and quote large if you want to go down the end of the property. but it not, most of the animals are in a relatively small area and easy to see. what makes this place though is its personality.

We stopped after coming upon this attraction. The park is very well taken care of and access to the animals is great. The staff do meet and greetings of some of the animals and learn more about them and how they live. You can also by some food and feed the wild animals. This is always fun and you can... More

Great visit to this wildlife park. The keepers are all really enthusiastic and well informed. Very interesting and enjoyable talks given by the keepers on the animals kept in the park. Was great to see wombats and tasmanian devils up close.

I stepped into Natureworld as I was returning from another destination and I'm glad I did. Great place to walk around the huge grounds and see a variety of local wildlife. Take the time to see the feedings. Sarah was so informative and was a great guide, someone who loved the animals.

I was so excited to visit this wildlife park after living abroad for 6 years. My mum and I got into Bicheno around 3pm and headed straight for the park. $50 to get in for an hour I thought was steep but we'd come all this way. We were in the park for 20 mins when my mum was chased... More

Need about 2-3 hours to see everything. Suggest arriving either just before10am or 3pm when feeding begins to see all the animals. Lots of Devils and some unusual animals like poteroos. Worth the admission fee. They mostly have animals orphaned from roadkill. Probably more closeup opportunities to see the animals here than other places.

Small animal park that really only has tassie devils, wombats and quolls. What made our trip here were the keepers. We did the walk about where you were able to see most of the animals being fed. The keepers spent the time teaching you about the animals and how they got to be at the park. Most of them were... More

The staff were fantastic, thoroughly enjoyed the animals and the walk tired them out, again thank you. We spent a couple of hours there and topped it off with a good half hour on the amazing playground. The talks were very informative and the kids were absorbed. Thank you once again.

I said this in all reviews, we went to 4 different ones throughout Tasmania, and now i can honestly say that this place is great, but could use an upgrade, seems tired and like someone mentioned many areas are vacant. This was the only place that had a feeding of Tassy presentation that looked great. The staff made them work... More
