Wildways Tours offers a number of unique guided wildlife tours in Tasmania. We take you into the Tasmanian wilderness to learn about our unique wildlife in their natural habitat. We have the only speciality devil-viewing hides in Tasmania, providing a truly rare experience to see Tasmanian Devils in the wild. The hides are small shelters in the wilderness where guests stay overnight, watching through one-way glass as Tasmanian Devils, and other nocturnal wildlife species, show up throughout the night to eat, groom and interact with each other.
Offering several tour options, giving guests the chance to experience Tasmania’s wildlife close up and in the wild. Our tours cover all species of Tasmanian wildlife, including Snakes, Platypus, Masked Owls, Eastern Barred Bandicoots, Echidnas, Eastern and Spotted Tail Quolls, Wallabies, Wombats, Wedge Tailed Eagles, and many more species. Whatever species you have on your bucket list, we can find it for you. Tony Conlan founded our company in 2014 and has worked over the last 40 years to save habitat for Tasmania’s wild animals. He has not only become one of Tasmania’s leading wildlife experts and protectors – he has worked to change attitudes around the management of the wild.

Our Tasmanian Devil & Wildlife hides offer a one-of-a-kind wildlife experience in Tasmania. Stay the night inside the hide and watch through the one-way glass as Tasmanian Devils show up outside.
As part of your stay we take you on a short tour of the Tasmanian Devils habitat, where you can learn all about the tracks and traces Devils leave behind, the environment they live in, and how to track their activity. Once you are in the hide for the night you have two single beds to keep you warm and comfortable while you wait for the Devils to show up.
Operating nightly for the last 4 years, and with new hides built in other parts of the state, we offer a rare opportunity to watch wild Tasmanian Devils on any given night. With cameras running 24/7 at each of our sites we record and document the activity of the local Devil populations, allowing us to observe their individual behaviours each night. Nowhere else can you stay out in the wilderness within the Devil’s natural habitat, while staying warm, dry and out of sight, as Tasmania’s nocturnal wildlife shows up directly in front of you each and every night.
