This is a huge 450-hectare wildlife sanctuary for orphaned and injured animals, about an hour’s drive west of Hobart (2 kilometres east of Mount Field National Park). Visitors see a variety of animals, but the aim is to nurture the injured back to good health and release them into the sanctuary. On a three-hour night tour you can be shown platypus, wallabies, bandicoots, quolls, wombats and devils, and will help set up special remote cameras to take photographs of animals after you have gone. The images will then be emailed to you later.
