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.

Great to see the devil being fed and lots of devils in their enclosures came up close to us to get great photos.

Was a little disappointed with the Unzoo they had around 5 Devils and some other native animals. Not much for the money you pay. The people were lovely and so helpful.

We enjoyed our visit to the Unzoo. We were able to hand feed the kangaroos. We also watched the Tasmanian Devil feeding and the bird talk. Both were very informative! After the bird talk we were able to get up close to a tawny frogmouth!

This unzoo it’s a true rip off, you pay $35 to enter a “zoo” which keeps 4 Tasman devils, bunch of kangaroos and a couple of sad birds in a big cage. Totally disappointing and not worth the price. Have no idea who actually left...More

Maybe we should have looked more into what’s in a name because the name unzoo sums this up perfectly. It wasn’t our cup of tea mainly because we had to self-guide ourselves through what appeared to be a poorly maintained zoo. There wasn’t a lot...More

Fantastic to be able to see the Tasmanian Devils and feed the very friendly Kangaroos but the rest of the place was pretty unimpressive. At least the entrance fee helps to fund the conservation work for the Tasmanian Devils so consider it a donation and...More
