Wildlife Hospital

We have a tailored wildlife and rehabilitation hospital, designed to accommodate, and meet the needs of our unique Tasmanian Wildlife, encompassing several buildings and structures throughout our 20 acres that is unlike any other facility.

The facility boasts:

  • An experienced local veterinary team

  • On-site pathology testing

  • Digital imaging

  • Rehabilitator consultation room

  • Rescue drop off

  • Hospital grade recovery

  • Intensive Care

  • Soft tissue surgery

  • Orthopaedic surgery

  • Emergency triage and critical care

  • Separation between the wild and domestic animals


Being wild has never felt better! Native wildlife treated on-site is FREE 

Treating for Release


The veterinary team believes wild animals should stay wild. The decision on whether treatment is appropriate can be very hard for everyone but often falls back to the same question, can the animal be returned to the wild and survive?


Veterinarians are trained in forecasting what will happen next. The process considers the disease or injury, treatment responses, natural behaviours including an animal’s ability to source their own food, shelter and water and escape from predators and danger.


The generous and ongoing support of the Elsie Cameron Foundation with support from Wildcare Tasmania, has made the wildlife dream come true.

Our free wildlife services do not extend to privately owned pets or to those animals owned for exhibition and amusement. We recommend you see your regular vet for assistance.

We invite sanctuaries, rehabilitators, public and veterinary hospitals to refer injured wildlife cases to our team. Consults are by appointment only.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we work and live, and respect their ongoing custodianship of the land.

We pay respect to Tasmanian Aboriginal people, and Elders past and present and those emerging.
