The privately owned facility includes flight aviaries for large raptors such as Wedge-tailed and Sea Eagles, a flight tunnel, purpose built owl aviary and newly constructed Education Centre.

A tour of the Refuge is an inspirational and educational experience. You will have the opportunity to see resident and recuperating Tasmanian raptors; Wedge-tailed Eagles, Hawks, Owls, Falcons and others.
