The Trowunna Wildlife Park has been the home to local animals for some
30 years and houses the largest number of endangered Tasmanian Devils.
This privately owned park displays a wide range of birds, marsupials and
reptiles. It has become the natural home for animals. The main aim of
the park is conservation and educating people about conservation of
animals. For the last 30 years, Trowunna has been offering the perfect
setting to capture the local wildlife for various documentaries, photo
shoots and television shows.
Most of the animals in the park are acquired either through
rehabilitation or rescue programs and this place has become a release
site for these kinds of animals. Here, animals are allowed to roam
freely within the park. Once the animals are cured they are released in
the wild. Some of the rescued and released animals include bennetts
wallabies, tasmanian common wombats, ringtail possums, brushtail possums
as well as many birds of prey. But in case of animals who are incapable
of taking care of them, they become permanent resident of the park.
Animals found at the park
The park offers abundant food, shelter and water and that is why, it has
become the home for green rosellas, potoroos, bandicoots and many
various ducks. Tasmanian devils are bred at Trowunna since 1985 and the
best time to see them is during their feeding time in the daily
interactive animal tours. Other animals that can be seen are eastern
quolls and spotted tail quolls. Also found here are Tasmanian subspecies
of the common wombat. You can also spot all five species of Tasmanian
macropods including pademelons, forester kangaroos, potoroos, bennetts
wallabies and bettongs.
Besides, there are different varieties of reptiles like lizards and
snakes and an abundance of both wild and native birds.
