A world class wildlife conservation facility at Tasmania’s premier wilderness destination. The spectacular and pristine wilderness of Cradle Mountain is home to the mysterious and secretive Tasmanian Devil.
Devils @ Cradle is a unique Tasmanian conservation sanctuary located at the entrance to the spectacular World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain National Park. Whilst we concentrate primarily on the Tasmanian devil, the sanctuary is also home to the closely related Spotted-tail and Eastern quolls. Tasmania’s three largest carnivorous marsupials are all now threatened in one way or another in the wild.
Visitors to the sanctuary can view these animals from the comfort of the visitor centre, wander through the sanctuary at their leisure, or join a personalised guided tour which ensures a close up encounter with our animals. Your visit will provide an insight into the daily operation of a working conservation facility for one of the world’s iconic animals, knowing your ticket fee is contributing to our conservation of these species.
Open DAY and NIGHT every day, we offer a range of experiences, from General Entry and DAY KEEPER tours through the day, to our AFTER DARK FEEDING tours in the evening. An experienced Tasmanian Devil Keeper will give you an accurate understanding of their life cycles and the current threats that confront them, such as Devil Facial Tumour Disease. We consider this aspect of our work a valuable tool in the education of the general public, and an important part of our conservation efforts.
Don’t miss your chance to visit Devils@Cradle … you’ll be pleased you did.
