Head into the wild at Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, a lush sprawl showcasing remarkable indigenous species including kangaroos, wallabies and Tasmanian devils. Enjoy a chocolate tasting at Federation Chocolate.
Wild fun and chocolaty delights await you on this engaging half-day excursion to the animal-abundant Tasmanian Devil Unzoo and Federation Chocolate. The adventure kicks off with a picturesque journey up the Tasman Peninsula on an air-conditioned motorcoach. As a knowledgeable guide shares noteworthy tidbits about the area, soak up the sweeping coastal views, lush farmland and rolling green hills.
Upon arriving in the quaint township of Taranna, head to the renowned Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park, which opened in 1978 to become the world's first Tasmanian devil center. Here, observe these unique black-and-white marsupials as they snarf, snarl and eat, which entails aggressively growling, crushing up bones and tearing meat, mostly carrion, to shreds. Thanks to a large head and neck, the Tasmanian devil is able to generate the strongest bite per unit of body mass of any living mammal, an impressive attribute. In addition to viewing devils in action, wander amongst kangaroos and wallabies in a large enclosure, observe quolls, golden possums, eagles, hawks and falcons and have fun hand-feeding friendly kangaroos. Come face to face with a Potoroo, a kangaroo-rat-like creature the size of a rabbit. Before leaving, enjoy exploring the park's Wildlife Gallery, which features photographs, artwork and sculptures, and scour the enticing gift shop for locally made mementos, including a wide range of flavorful wines.
