Directions to Tasmania Zoo
Tasmania Zoo is just 18km from Launceston's CBD. You'll find over 90 species of birds as well as a large collection of native and exotic animals. See the Meerkats, Tasmanian Devils and Little Blue Penguins being fed.
Operating since 2003 and located on 50 acres of native bushland, Tasmania Zoo's owners, Dick and Rochelle, are always looking at what they can add next. They have a breeding program helping to conserve the Tasmanian Devil. Jurassic Swamp was opened in 2012 and is a walk through bushland with dinosaurs lurking, plus sound effects. The detail in the dinosaurs is amazing and they were designed by none other than the setmakers of Lord of the Rings.
New arrivals in 2013 include two siamang, the largest members of the gibbons family and the only apes in Tasmania.
Picnic and bbq facilities are available. Enjoy sitting undercover at a picnic table and watching the meerkats in their glass-walled enclosure.
A recent addition is a jumping pillow to help children burn off that endless energy.
There is a gift shop where you can purchase t-shirts, baseball caps, stuffed animal toys of all shapes and sizes, plus other items.
ATM on site. No EFTPOS facilities.
