Wildlife Watching

On land or sea, specialist wildlife tours take you where you’re most likely to see rare and unusual fauna.

In many National Parks, animals are often easier to observe close-up, especially at dusk.
Tasmania’s isolation from mainland Australia has ensured the survival of many plants and animals that are rare, or even extinct, elsewhere in the country.

Visitors are often surprised at how accessible Tasmania’s native wildlife is. In many areas on even a short bushwalk you can come across a pademelon, wombat or wallaby. Beacuse many of the animals are active at night, we ask all visitors to take particular care when driving at dusk or after dark.
