Tasmania is the last refuge for many native animals that once roamed freely across the Australian continent. Today this island is the only place you can see a Tasmanian devil, Eastern quoll, spotted-tailed quoll and the Tasmanian bettong in the wild. Wildlife in Tasmania is abundant and for most part relatively easy to spot. In every corner of the island you can find friendly, furry locals and wilderness and national parks begging to be explored.
