about the feeding frenzy tour

The Feeding Frenzy tour is a group feeding tour with your own personal guide. Group sizes are kept to a maximum of six people to ensure every participant has plenty of opportunity to interact with the critters.

You’ll get up close to as many different animals as possible in two and a half hours and you’ll be supporting an incredible cause! (If we do say so ourselves.)

The Feeding Frenzy may include:

  • Feeding the wombats their daily snacks
  • Giving the cockatoos their (sometimes) wriggly treats!
  • Hooking the Tassie devil onto its snack & start a game of tug of war!
  • Meeting our two unique species of quoll and spotting their differences
  • Feeding fresh eucalyptus to the koalas whilst stroking their thick, woolly fur
  • Hand-feeding the tawny frogmouth birds and watching them swallow their food whole
  • Spotting the secretive and little known Tasmanian bettongs in their grassy nests
  • Seeing the sweet-toothed sugar gliders come out for their dessert, 
  • and more!

What to bring

We advise bringing warm clothes, comfortable shoes and spare batteries (and memory cards) for your camera!
