A private tour of the Raptor Refuge is unforgettable! It's a unique opportunity to see our raptor rehabilitation facility first-hand, where we've helped injured birds of prey return to the wild for over 20 years. Explore the grounds with our friendly and knowledgeable guides. Find out how fast peregrine falcons can fly, see a rare grey goshawk, be amazed by the silent flight of masked owls, then get up close to Australia's largest raptor, the majestic Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle! The refuge, just 30 minutes from Hobart in tranquil bushland, includes some of the largest aviaries in Tasmania and a wonderful Education Centre. Our display birds have injuries that mean they wouldn't survive if released. So, these unique characters have become part of the raptor refuge family to help us teach about the importance of wildlife conservation. Our 90 minute tours include time for photos and questions and are a fantastic experience for adults and children. Tours run Monday to Saturday at 10am 12pm and 2pm Bookings must be made 12 hours in advance via our website. We're a non-profit organisation committed to securing the future of Tasmania's raptors. All funds raised go towards their rehabilitation and ongoing care.
