Wildlife Watching

It doesn’t get much better

Tasmania is a treasure trove for the keen wildlife enthusiast and the North West corner does not disappoint. Whilst it’s almost impossible not to spot wombats and wallabies on your travels (please drive slowly at night!), devils quolls and all manner of mammalian inhabitants await you, particularly upon nightfall. A quiet meander along a river or stream will often reward with a platypus too. Don’t forget to look up – all many species of glorious raptors cruise the air currents overhead, least of all the majestic Wedge-tailed Eagle. Quite easy to spot along the coast are seals, penguins, shearwaters, sea eagles, dolphin and whales.
