WHY DON’T YOU? GO WILD
Tasmania is home to a wealth of fascinating wildlife so why not spend time in the school holidays getting up close with a devil, kangaroo, platypus or even a seahorse. At Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (bonorong.com.au) you can feed kangaroos, see Randall the three-legged echidna and chat to Fred the cockatoo who is more than 100 years old. Meanwhile Zoo Doo (zoodoo.com.au) is home to native wildlife as well as exotic imports including meerkats, tigers and zebras. In the North, check out Seahorse World (seahorseworld.com.au) at Beauty Point, where a hands-on Kids’ Discovery Program runs during the school holidays for children aged between 4-10 years old. You can also catch a glimpse of platypuses at nearby Platypus House (platypushouse.com.au) and walk through the centre’s echidna garden.
