Devils @ Cradle

Zoos, Sanctuaries, Aquariums and Wildlife Parks

The Devils @ Cradle Tasmanian devil sanctuary is a breeding and conservation facility for three of Tasmania’s unique threatened carnivorous marsupials; the Tasmanian devil, the Spotted-tailed Quoll, and Eastern Quoll.
The facility is located on the edge of the Cradle Mountain National Park World Heritage area and conducts in-situ conservation programs for the Tasmanian devil including an on-site breeding program for insurance of the species.
A visit to the sanctuary day or night will allow you to observe these extraordinary animals up close whilst one of our keepers will give you an understanding of their life cycle and the threats that confront them.
The sanctuary is open from 9:30 with ‘Day Keeper Tours’ being conducted at 10:30 and 15:00 daily, and a ‘Day Feeding Tour’ at 13:00. While in the evening visitors can observe the amazing night time antics of the animals being fed on an ‘After Dark Feeding Tour’. Behind the scenes tours such as the ‘Joey Encounter’ allow visitors to have up-close encounters with these animals.
Devils @ Cradle is committed to the conservation and protection of this now vulnerable species. The centre operates a successful captive breeding program, ensuring the ongoing survival of Tasmanian devils in healthy numbers in the wild.
