Trowunna is a privately owned wildlife sanctuary where native Tasmanian fauna and flora thrive. Trowunna started caring for Tasmania’s native animals in 1979 and it continues to be at the forefront of conservation and education in the state.

The Sanctuary has 70 acres of natural habitat to wander around and enjoy with free ranging Kangaroos and waterfowl to hand feed along the way.

Education and Conservation

Trowunna has always been interested in conservation. They promote conservation through education.

They are very active in breeding animals that are declining in the wild, most notably, the Tasmanian devil. Currently and historically Trowunna is the most successful place for the breeding of Tasmanian devils, so they share their success and knowledge with those willing to learn, through our Tasmanian Devil Training Courses. Trowunna is committed primarily to the in-situ conservation projects for the Tasmanian devil and the Spotted-tailed quoll.
