Tasmania Trvel Pt 13: Up-Close With Tassie Wildlife At East Coast Natureworld.

East Coast Natureworld  is a great place to experience Tasmania's wildlife. We visited this place enroute to Freycinet National Park and had a good time interacting up-close with some of the animals there.
Natureworld  is located on the main Tasman Highway, just 5 minutes north of Bicheno. Open daily from 9am to 5pm, this wildlife sanctuary charges an entrance fee of AUD24 (adult) and AUD11 (2 to 15 yrs old).
Set amongst 150 acres of parkland and lagoons, Natureworld offers a very relaxing ambiance; one where you can take leisurely walks and appreciate wildlife, birdlife and floras at your own pace.
A main highlight is the Tasmanian Devil, an animal indigenous to Tasmania.
The devil is a carnivorous marsupial (has its baby in a pouch) and is aggressive when it comes to food. Faced with competitors for food, they will make all types of noises from barking, snorting, growling and screaming to scare each other off. It is this screaming and the fierce look that gives rise to its 'Devil' name.
The devils prefer to eat dead animals or anything rotten. They have powerful jaws that will crush even the bones and the whole carcass will be devoured leaving nothing to pollute the environment.
