Visited en route to Cradle Mountain. Delighted as saw Tasmanian Devils up close, quolls, fed kangaroos that were friendly but not pesky, fascinating place. A place that is at one with nature where you can stroll round at leisure, the animals vary in age, there is even a 'Devil's retirement Home' for the older animals. First encounter with TD's-hissing and... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Tasmania! A parklike setting with many kangaroos hopping and lying around. You can buy ‘roo food and they will come up to you and eat out of your hand. What a treat to feel their lips nibbling treats from your hand. They are friendly and polite and not at all afraid of... More

If you take the Mole Creek Road from Sheffield to Deloraine you cannot miss this place with its large Tasmanian Devil model at the entrance. We started with the guide educating us about a wombat which they'd got as a baby when his mother became roadkill. We then had an incredible introduction to seven young Tasmanian devils whom the guide... More

You can get a bag of kangaroo and duck and geese feed at the entrance. The Roos are quite tame and happy to eat right off your palm. At certain times there's a talking guide to show you the locally rescued wombat. You'll have a chance to pat its back... also Tasmanian devil feeding is a must watch

We had no plans to visit Trowunna Wildlife Park during our visit to Mole Creek but found we had a spare afternoon and decided to go. It was well worth the visit

We did the private tour worth every cent. I got to hold and cuddle a wombat up close with devils and tawny frog mouths and quills. Fantastic experience and Passionate dedicated staff.

They are rehabilitating animals which is great but the place is in need of funds from the look of things, a bit run down. If more people visited it would raise awareness as they are really trying hard to rehabilitate the animals.
