WHERE TO SEE THE TASMANIAN DEVIL
Mountain Valley is a sanctuary for wildlife. To preserve their habitat this 61h property is a registered 'Land for Wildlife' and 'Private Nature Reserve' This lost valley is home to many species of birds from tiny wrens to the Tasmanian sub species of the wedge tail eagle and the white goss hawk. Eleven of the twelve Tasmanian endemic birds inhabit the reserve making it ideal for bird watching at any time of the year. Watch the antics of the resident family of Native Hens or the brilliant blue colour of the Superb Fairy Wren as they flitter around the cabins. Interpretive tours are taken at dusk to show you the Platypus as they forage for food in the still pools of the pristine river. After dark the wildlife emerge from the forest to feed at your cabin. You will be visited at your door by wallabies (Pademelon), brushtail possums including
TASMANIAN DEVILS and QUOLLS both on the threatened species
list. Experience a TASMANIAN DEVIL, face to face, through the window of
your log cabin . Some of the other wildlife that live in this habitat are
echidnas, ringtail possums, pygmy possums, sugar gliders, wombats, potoroos,
bats and antechinus .
You will marvel at the light display as you are guided into the eerie darkness of the Glow Worm Grotto. This reserve is a release for rehabilitated wildlife.
