Totally worth the number of layers required to see the after dark feeding. Very knowledgeable and was happy to share. Very passionate about the animals and what the conservationists are doing. Excellent views so you don't miss out on seeing any of the action. 3...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour and learning about the conservation & breeding of the Tassie Devils and other Tasmanian wildlife. Was great to get up close and see them interacting with each other etc. Really easy to walk around and enclosures all very visible.

The devils are incredibly cute and at this park you get incredibly close to them. We heard a couple of them growling and you can tell why the early explorers thought they were demons!

The guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt heaps. Rug up though, it's very cold after dark walking around the enclosures

It is great to see that so much is being done to help these little animals. It was fascinating to hear how the devils live and are being bred. It was also good to see the quolls and their feeding habits. Well worth the visit.

Very interesting visit to Devils @ Cradle. We were given lots of information on Tassie Devils as well as Quolls. Great to see such passionate people working to safe these Australian animals.

Hi there, Despite their fiesty reputation the devils are actually quite a timid animal. Whilst the ones in the facility are fairly used to people handling of the Tasmanian devils can be stressful for them, so we do not... More
