About The Zoo

One of their main selling points- we’re sure you’ll be sold on it – is that Tasmania Zoo is the only Zoo in Tasmania to be fully accredited. As a result, they also have the most extensive collection of Tasmanian natives in the states.

You’ll find the Zoo situated in the island’s northern part, around 10km west of Launceston. From Hobart, it’ll take you about 2 hours and 30 minutes to drive up there. However, it’s well worth it.

Unlike other zoos, it looks like Tasmania Zoo, unfortunately, doesn’t offer membership for extra-keen visitors. So if you are looking to check out the exotic animals quite regularly, you’re going to have to pay the entry price each time.

Of course, visit enough, and you’ll likely become friends with the workers. Hell – you could even get yourself a job there if you’re that keen!

In July 2017, the first of the endangered species of Red Panda arrived at the Zoo. There are plans to rejuvenate the species and bring them back up to a healthy population.

Altogether, Tasmania Zoo houses a massive 1000+ individual animals, spanning 100 species. Parrots, reptiles, cats, monkeys, mammals, and more.

Reviews

As we like to do, we took to the internet to see what a few people had to say about their experience.

Their Google review listing had plenty to choose from, and it was tough only to select a few. But we doubled down and got the job done.

Here are a few that we found:

It was a pleasant surprise by how large the Zoo is. It has a variety of animals and reptiles, and the zookeepers are knowledgeable. Meerkats would have to be my favourite. – Tris Long

Tassie Devil was feeding well to watch. It can get nice and close to most animals. Can interact with the baby animals. Good private Zoo that needs us to keep coming so they can keep improving. – Darrel Reiser

A Good Day Out

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Now that you know, all that is needed is to go and visit the exquisite Tasmania Zoo.

As you’ve seen at the beginning of the article, entry prices into the Zoo itself are pretty reasonable. And we’re pretty positive you’ll walk out (if your legs can still carry you) feeling you got your money’s worth.
