Tour Overview

Your half-day excursion begins at the ship's pier where you'll board your motorcoach and head to the countryside of Gunns Plains. This valley's soil is rich with red volcanic minerals formed from the eroded basalt that makes up the coastline. It's a region known for agriculture and you're likely to see expanses of hearty cool climate crops, such as potatoes and poppies, as well as cattle ranches, dairy farms and wineries. This area is also known for the beautiful Leven Canyon with glorious views of the mountains and river that runs through it, and Cradle Mountain, part of the Tasmanian World Heritage Area.

Upon arrival at Wings Wildlife Park, you'll realize what a special place this is. A sanctuary for injured wildlife and home to a most extensive collection of Tasmanian wildlife. Your guides will provide you an opportunity to interact with the animals, getting up close and personal. It's an experience you won't soon forget!

Meet all your favorite animals from Down Under, including the famous Tasmanian Devil, and the beloved Koala and Wallaby. Plus, hundreds of other animals, including exotics, farm animals, birds, reptiles, rodents, aquatic life and more. Wander the many wildlife exhibits while guides stationed throughout the park offer narratives on the various animals, their habitats, history, eating habits and more.

Be sure to stop by the gift shop to pick up a memento of this special day before boarding the motorcoach. En route, you'll pass the town of Penguin. This small town is where Tasmania's Fairy Penguins return each spring to build their rookeries and incubate their eggs. Note the giant penguin statue. The other town you'll drive through is Ulverstone, a picturesque town of some 10,000 inhabitants and graced with beautiful beaches. Enjoy the scenic drive and relax on the ride back to the pier as you cherish the new furry friends you've made today.
