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.
