We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here having been unsure about fitting it in to a hectic schedule. It was well run, interesting, there was a wide range of animals to see and learn about and the staff were extremely helpful and informative. The place is run without state subsidy although they are saving, studying and preserving the lives of indigenous... More

If you have min 2 hours drop in here. Roomy and nicely set out; animals look in good condition. You need to do a tour though to get the most out of it as animals are then active and presented. Chris and Sarah both knowledgeable and enthusiastic, wonderful presenters. Even the free roaming kangaroos have good manners!

My family loves to go here for breakfast every time we are in Bicheno. They have a great basic menu with eggs and bacon, a big breakfast, pancakes, raisin toast and an egg and bacon burger. The food is always good quality and not expensive. The staff are friendly (they remember what we have, maybe we go too often?!?!) and... More

Learning about wombats and Tasmanian devils from enthusiastic keepers was so interesting. Being able to cuddle Esther an 8th old orphan wombat was an experience I never thought I would have. They are doing a wonderful job here and lets hope the can assist in keeping the Tasmanian devils from extinction. Feeding the kangaroos, ducks and other animals was good... More

The park and the keepers and the animals were great. The attitude and service in the café was a little disappointing though. My advice for what it's worth is enjoy the park and leave a donation they are doing a great job, but eat elsewhere.

You are unlikely to encounter a wildlife park guide with as much enthusiasm and information as Chris. The half an hour or so we spent with him was fabulous and then Sarah took over with the sugar gliders and quolls which was also very interesting and enjoyable. There is a great range of creatures there; some free range and some,... More

Amazing place where you get up close with all different Australian wildlife. Chris was our tour guide who was a world of knowledge. Chris explained about the tassie devils and was extremely passionate about his job. Thanks so much Chris for knowing you job so well. It was amazing seeing the tassie devils strength when they would bit down on... More

Great nature park, so spacious and so many species from tiger snakes and eagles to devils, deer and quolls. I actually encountered a tiger snake in one of the large aviaries, slithered right past my boot and into some bushes. The botanical gardens nearby were quite interesting especially with the cream-coloured fallow deer hiding amongst the trees. It was almost... More

We have been to East Coast Nature World twice, and loved it both times. Chris' talks were very informative, and it was great to see a variety of animals that wouldn't be easily seen in the wild. Hearing about the stories of the rescue animals, and the conservation efforts of the park was interesting. The park is very affordable for... More
