  • The place was large and easy to walk around. Plenty of devils to look at and we got to see some baby devils playing together and then playing with mum. We did pay to do the animal nursery encounter...  more »

  • Entry was very reasonably priced at $20. Only had about 6 people on our tour but this is the tourism off season. The tour is included as part of your entry and well worth the cost. I would even think Devils@Cradle should increase the cost of entry as I learnt so much and paid so little! Thank you for the experience. I supported Devils@Cradle further by buying a few items from their gift shop - these items were also reasonably priced. For the tour, do take a jacket if there’s cool weather or rain around as some of the tour is outdoors - though you’re mostly sheltered by trees or walkways.
  • What amazing creatures. Tour was great and the guide was very knowledgeable and could answer our questions. Kids loved it.
