An experience where family memories are made.

Camping on the flats along the banks of the Leven River at Wings Wildlife Park is very popular, with so many things to do in a great location. Bring your kayaks, go fishing, splash about in the water, play cricket, go for walks, ride your bikes, or just relax under the shade of a tree. Why not bring some friends? We also have powered sites and backpacker units available, so there’s something to suit everyone.

The main camping area is an attractive, large, grassed, riverside area with some shade. Suitable for tents and self-sufficient caravans. Powered sites and a picnic shelter are available near the amenities, and camping is also available here if preferred. The amenities, including toilets, showers, disabled facilities and laundry block, are situated beyond the reception building.

Swap and go gas bottle exchange is available.

Entry to the Farm Walk is included in all accommodation fees. This area includes buffalo, bison, camels, alpacas, ponies, ostrich, emus, deer, turkeys and more. Entry to the main Wildlife Area has an additional charge, but you will only need to pay once during your stay and it will cover you for all the subsequent days you stay at the Park. Just let us know that you’re a camper and we’ll record your name when you pay.

Plan Your Visit

Planning a camping trip along the north west coast of Tasmania, want to include a wildlife park in your “to do” list? You will need at least 2 hours for a leisurely visit, but we recommend staying longer to get a greater wildlife experience. Good planning can make your visit more enjoyable, whether you come for the day or come to stay, so don’t forget to check on our feeding and interaction times with some of our wildlife so that you don’t miss out on these opportunities.

Accommodation Terms of Use

Checkout Times:
11am for powered sites and units
3pm for non-powered camp sites

  • No pets allowed.
  • You must have attained 18 years of age to book accommodation.
  • Motor bikes not allowed (except for transport to site).
  • No parties – this is a family park.
  • Remove all your rubbish, and leave the site clean.
  • Always be considerate of other campers.
  • Children should be watched at all times and not left unattended, especially when near the river.
  • It is a condition of a guest occupancy that the owners of the premises will not be liable for damage to or loss of property brought into the premises by the occupier or their guests.

If you arrive at the park between 10am and 4pm, please register and pay at reception. If you arrive after hours, payment will be collected from you at the camping grounds.

Clothing and Footwear

  • Comfortable footwear is always recommended for your visit to Wings Wildlife Park. There is so much to look at here that you might be on your feet for hours! In winter, or when we have had a lot of rain, boots are recommended as some heavy use areas such as the kangaroo enclosure can become muddy.
  • If there’s a chance of rain, pack your coat or umbrella, maybe even a change of clothes for the kids. We usually have the fire going when it’s cold, but you don’t want to be sitting in wet clothes for the drive home.
  • Summer days can be hot here too, so don’t forget the sunscreen and hats.

Photo opportunities

  • There are many photo opportunities here, such as the devil-feeding display, koala session, feeding the kangaroos, and so much more, so don’t forget your camera.
  • Make sure your camera is fully charged. If you’re staying for a few days, you might need to bring your charger. Spare batteries and cards could come in handy too.
  • Some of our animals are very active, so they are ideally suited to videos. Why not bring your video camera too?

Food

  • We have a café on site, so you can choose from our range of meals and snacks, hot and cold drinks, during opening hours.
  • Picnic facilities are available, so you can bring your own food to eat on the veranda or picnic benches on the lawn.
  • Gas barbecues are available for hire. Wood barbecues are also available, but you will need to bring your own firewood.
  • Catering is available for parties and groups. Just give us a ring or send us an email and let us know your requirements beforehand. The undercover “Devil’s Den” area can be booked so that you have your own enclosed space.

Gift Shop

  • Don’t forget to buy some postcards to send to your friends, some souvenirs or cuddly toys to take home to friends and family that couldn’t be with you on this trip, and treat yourself to something Tasmanian as a reminder of your visit.
  • Food for the kangaroos and grass-eating animals can be purchased. Our gentle kangaroos are used to people and will eat straight out of your hands. Tubs of fish food are available too – see the look on your kid’s face as the trout jump for their food.

Staying Over

We have no mobile or TV reception here. Be prepared to keep your kids and yourself entertained in the evenings.

  • Access to our large animal walk is included in the cost of your accommodation, whether you’re staying in a backpacker unit or camping. This area stays open all the time, so you can wander around and see the bison, buffalo, camels, ostrich, emus, alpacas, ducks, geese, emus and other farm animals any time of the day.
  • Nocturnal tours are available during the winter months. We have nocturnal animals that sleep during the day and become active at night. This tour includes an interactive, hands-on, exciting experience.
  • Finish the night off with a muffin and hot drink by the fire. Bookings essential. The cost of your nocturnal tour will also cover you for entry into the wildlife park on all subsequent days of your stay.
  • The Leven River runs through the wildlife park. This is a great place to fish in season. You need your own permit, rods and bait. Catches can include trout, blackfish and eels.
  • Other activities such as kayaking and swimming in the river can be great fun too. Kids will always need to be watched closely near water, so be safe while you’re having fun.
  • The Penguin-Cradle walking track passes nearby. Wings Wildlife Park is often used as a stop-over on this 6 day walk. There are also short walks at the rear of the wildlife park into the Dial Range, so put on your walking-boots and go for a hike or a short stroll.
  • Bring some books to read or board games for the family for old-fashioned entertainment that is still enjoyable.

Suggested Itinerary

Whether you come for the day or come to stay, there are lots of options of other things to do in Gunns Plains. Here are a few ideas for making the most of your time:

  • Gunns Plains Caves. Just 5 minutes drive from Wings Wildlife Park. Discover the magic hidden beneath the picturesque farmland of Gunns Plains – a fascinating world of limestone formations, glow worms, cave spiders, sinkholes and underground streams. Daily tour times are 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm.
  • Preston Falls. Just 10 minutes drive, then a 5 minute walk from the wildlife park. Particularly spectacular after rain, but worth a look at any time of the year, this delightful 25m waterfall plunges into the shady depths of a gorge and is surrounded by blackwood forest.
