Visit the home of the largest collection of Tasmanian wildlife in the world at the family-run Wing's Wildlife Park, set among 106 acres of bushland. The park functions in part as a haven for injured or orphaned wildlife, providing a rehabilitation area to help them re-enter the wild.

Leaving Burnie, you'll travel along the Bass Highway coastal route, via the resort town of Ulverstone and through the rolling hills and countryside, before arriving at Wing's Wildlife Park.

Enjoy approximately two hours on your own to explore the park, and to meet the animals and their keepers. See Tasmanian devils, quolls, kangaroos, emus, ostriches, camels and water buffalo.

Visit the reptile enclosure, where you will have a chance to feel the skin of a non-venomous snake.

Hand-feed the native freshwater fish (food can be purchased at an additional cost), and see the birds of prey and native hens in the wetland area.

After your wildlife encounter, return to Burnie and the ship.

Notes:

Naturalist guides are on hand throughout the park to assist; however, your time at the park is unguided and you will explore on your own. Tour does not operate on holidays.
