Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park - Taranna
The Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park is a wildlife park at Taranna, southeast Tasmania. Taranna is 75 minutes south east of Hobart (88 kilometres/55 miles) on the Tasman Peninsula.
You can see Tasmanian devils close at hand here, alongside other native animals including quolls, rare golden possums and wallabies. Free-ranging kangaroos can be hand-fed, and you can see wedge-tailed eagles, falcons and hawks in Kings of the Wind, Tasmania's only free-flight raptor show. Devils in the Dark is a guided, evening tour offering the opportunity to see Tasmanian devils in their natural habitat. The Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park also features a Wildlife Gallery, which showcases original works by artists, photographers and sculptors. The exhibition is dedicated entirely to showcasing native Australian wildlife. The Vineyard Café, which overlooks 30-year-old pinot noir vines, offers fine Tasmanian food, great coffee and wine and cheese tasting.
Established in 1978, the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park is committed to the conservation of the Tasmanian devil, which are threatened by facial tumour disease. The Park is involved in a number of research projects aimed at saving the animals from extinction and a longstanding breeding program has produced a healthy population of Tasmanian devils.
