About Tasmania Zoo, Launceston

The location of this resume feels very natural as it is that far outside the main city. Located on 900 acres of old-growth native bushland, the zoo is home to Tasmanian devils, emus, kangaroos, monkeys and apes, reptiles and more than 80 species of birds. Altogether there are over 1000 animals covering 100 species. Most of the traffic arrives during feeding time. A major children’s delight is the Jurassic Swamp area. It has full size sculptures of over 40 dinosaurs. You can also book the zoo for private events and parties. Unlike other zoos of this size, this is a private family owned the business.

Tasmania Zoo, Launceston Reviews

  • Perfect size and good assortment of animals. For the people stating bad enclosures etc. they obv have no idea. Everything was decent and well maintained. I wish the advertised more as we nearly missed it.

  • Fantastic zoo. Friendly staff and clean amenities. Plenty to see. Jurassic park terrific idea. Well worth the visit.

  • I felt for the animals here. It was hot, sunny, dusty and the animals looked sad. They are kept in very un-enriching enclosures. It reminds me of a zoo from decades ago. Sorry staff but we couldn't wait to leave.

  • Better than expected. It is pretty rustic, but you can get up close to animals and all in all it was better than expected

  • Was very interesting and cool to see all the strange animals but some of them really need better enclosures that suit their regular habitat more as many of them seemed bored or uncomfortable. Friendly service. Tad expensive
