Meet a Tassie Devil

When European settlers first landed in Tasmania, the scavenging screeches of a strange local animal frightened the kerosene lanterns right out of their trembling little hands. Today, the aptly named Tasmanian Devil is an icon of Australia’s largest island. On a trip to Tasmania, these marsupial carnivores can still be spotted on walks in Tasmania’s world heritage wilderness. Along the way, look out for wombats and the elusive platypus. Get up close to Tasmania’s wildlife at Bonorong Wilderness Sanctuary during a feeding.
