For those interested in wildlife, the Tasman Peninsula is the ideal spot to visit. Boat cruises on the ocean almost guarantee visitors the opportunity to view whales, dolphins and Australian Fur Seals along with many different species of sea birds. The local national parks also provide opportunities to see Kangaroos, Wallabies, Quolls and Possums. If a close up experience is your thing, the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo shouldn’t be missed!
This wildlife park at Taranna (10 minutes from Eaglehawk Pavilions) houses a remarkable Tasmanian Devil display and is conducting valuable research into the devil facial tumour disease.
