Tasmania might be known for Tasmanian devils, but here at the popular Wing's Wildlife Park outside the town of Gunns Plains, guests have the chance to see a number of interesting animals, with everything from emus to bison, camels, koalas, swamp buffalo, and marmoset. As one of Tasmania's largest animal collections Wing's Wildlife Park is home to birds, reptiles, mammals, and even fish—all of which slink, scurry, or swim around their enclosures.
Travelers can walk the grounds that teem with over 100 species of wildlife, or watch as staff members carefully feed the koalas, Tasmanian devils, and wombats. For a real country Tasmanian treat, stay overnight at a cabin or campground and join in a guided evening tour in search of nocturnal creatures—some animals tend to hide or sleep in the heat of the day but suddenly stroll out as soon as the sun goes down.
Most visitors allow at least two hours to tour the park; wearing comfortable walking shoes is recommended. Koala and wombat feedings take place at 11am and 2:30pm, while meerkats are fed at 11:30am and Tasmanian devils at 1pm. While overnight accommodations range from $6 to $130, day tickets cost $22 for adults and $10 for children. Admission is free for kids under 3.
