Rosedale Animal Sanctuary

Bring the kids (that’s grown-up big kids too!) and enjoy the day at our animal sanctuary and petting zoo. With arena shows* and opportunities to interact with our wide variety of animals.

Meet our animals…

Our animal sanctuary and petting zoo is full of a wide variety of woolly and furry friends, with kangaroos, our resident camels, an aviary with our beautiful colourful birds, the cutest of goats, mini donkeys and cows, the cheeky lama’s and much more.

Entry gives you a day pass which also allows you to enjoy our picnic facilities (why not get a treat from the Restaurant too?) and watch our arena entertainment featuring our very talented Julie who is renowned for her horsemanship  and animal handling skills.


Come watch a show

Owners Chris and Julie will wow you with their stunning horses, and exotic birds.  A chance to see such unique performances right here on the Tasman Peninsula.

Petting Zoo

Come and have a cuddle with our family of rabbits, goats and sheep. Everyday at Rosedale Homestead, a variety of animals love to come and say hi up-close-and-personal to you.


Animals have been central to our lives for as long as we can remember and Rosedale Homestead’s Animal Park was created because we wanted to share our passion with others and give children and adults the chance meet a wide variety of animals in an informal setting, with country hospitality.
