Five Icons of the Isle State


As an island and with a large and mostly intact natural habitat, Tasmania provides a safe haven for a huge range of unique wildlife; many found nowhere else. The Tasmanian Devil is perhaps the best known species, however, some of our lesser known marsupials also win the hearts of tourists and locals alike. Here are the top five unique animals you will likely see when touring Tasmania. 1. The Platypus The Platypus is one of only two egg laying mammals (monotremes) in the world. With their duck bill, webbed feet and beaver like tail, they are certainly unique! They thrive in the cool Tasmanian environment and you don’t have to be far out of Tasmania’s capital city, Hobart, to see them in the wild. 2. White Wallaby You may think of them as albino, but there are distinct gene differences that make the rare White Wallaby or Painted Wallaby a white variant of Tasmanian Bennett’s Wallaby.  If touring on Bruny Island south of Hobart, it is well worth a stop to try and spot these beautiful animals! Albino Bennett’s Wallabies are more widespread across the island and are also a magnificent sight across the lush surroundings. 3. Tasmanian Devil The Tasmanian Devil is the largest carnivorous marsupial in the world. They can be found all over Tasmania and while hard to spot, they can often be heard at night; their screeches and growls are distinctive. If you want to see this Tassie icon at night, our wildlife and wilderness tour takes you right into the heart of devil country. 4. Eastern Quoll Now extinct on the mainland, the Eastern Quoll is common in Tasmania, particularly in the Mt Field National Park. Also being a carnivorous marsupial, they can often be found competing for food with the Tasmanian Devil and scavenging food from them, however, their main...

Tasmanian Devil Monitoring Program

Tasmanian Devil Monitoring Program


The plight of the Tasmanian Devil, whose species has been affected by a facial tumour disease, has inspired Premier Travel Tasmania to actively support and donate funds to assist with the research to save the world’s largest carnivorous marsupial. We give $5 for every customer to ‘Go Wild’ at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. The sanctuary’s dedicated team is involved in the rescue and research of this threatened species. Premier Travel Tasmania and Bonorong have joined forces and have developed the devil monitoring project, an initiative which is providing significant research data and insight into the devils breeding habits. Check out this video to have a sneak peak of these fascinating critters! Premier Travel Tasmania has also inspired a number of international wholesalers to match our donations. If you would like to find out more, experience Tasmania’s Devils and assist with their conservation, we suggest our 8 Day Tasmanian Wildlife Encounter small group tour, our 6 Day Tasmanian Devil Encounter private tour, our 1 Day Wilderness and Wildlife tour or a tailor-made program. All our conservation tours make a further contribution to the disease research effort.    ...
