Tasmanian Devil, Kangaroos & Wombats

Tasmanian Devil, Kangaroos & Wombats

One of the highlights of my day 3 Fun Tassie tour is the devil feeding at Natureworld, the fantastic Tasmanian Native Animal Sanctuary in Bicheno on Tasmania’s east coast.  These great little animals can be seen up close whilst feeding. They are part of the breeding program to help save the devils from possible extinction, due to the devil facial tumour disease, a terrible, transmittable type of cancer that has killed over 80% of Tasmanian devils.

Wombats, wallabies, pademelons and possums. Being in a small group it is always possible to stop and views these wonderful creatures. It is sometimes possible...

From Hong Kong | Honeymooners Tasmania Tour

Hong Kong Honeymooners Enjoy a Tasmanian Tour Having received a booking for the Tasmania in Circle Tour for the end of May, which is rather late in the season, I was a bit concerned the weather might be a problem. However, we decided to take the chance as it was the only time for Gary and Tracey from Hong Kong. The week before they arrived was cold and rain, with even snow in the mountains, however the Monday that I picked them to start the 6 day tour, was perfect, warm and sunny. Ideal conditions to enjoy the spectacular sea...
