DescriptionDeparting from the Burnie Arts and Function Centre at 11am or 12pm (depending on your cruise ship schedule), you’ll enjoy a scenic, one-hour drive to Gunns Plains on the edge of the Dial Range Forest Reserve. Once at Wings Wildlife Park, you’ll have 90 minutes to explore and meet some of the 150 different species that call the park home. Wings Wildlife Park was founded in 1986 by a local family, with most of its wildlife residents having been rescued and rehabilitated following injury. Wherever possible, the animals are then released back into the wild. Those that are unable to be returned to the wild settle permanently at the sanctuary under the dedicated care of its experienced staff. In addition to koalas, kangaroos and quolls, you can get up close to sugar-gliders, wedge-tail eagles and a diverse array of reptiles, such as carpet pythons and central bearded dragons. Wings Wildlife Park is also home to non-native species that include meerkats, capuchins and adorable marmosets, plus American bison, alpacas and camels. Wildlife presentations and feedings are held throughout the day and it’s possible to experience one-on-one animal encounters for an additional charge. Once you have toured the park, you can relax with a hot or cold drink at the on-site café, which also serves ice creams and delicious meals catering to all dietary requirements. The park gift shop is also well-stocked with wildlife-themed souvenirs. The bus will depart Wings Wildlife Park and have you back in Burnie well before the last shuttle leaves Burnie for your ship. We have many years experience providing cruise ship tours and design our tours to guarantee your arrival back to your ship well before departure. Photo Credit: Tourism Tasmania
