The size of a small domestic cat, the Eastern Quoll occurs in two colour morphs. One being fawn with white spots, the other less common morph is black with white spots, both have no spots on their tails. Eastern Quolls have been declared an endangered species.
Platypus

Forester Kangaroo
Is the largest of Tasmania’s marsupials and Tasmania’s only kangaroo with males growing up to 2 metres tall. Their coat colour varies from light brownish grey to grey. They are a social species often seen in family groups and form mobs. Forester kangaroos are wholly protected.
Tasmanian Wombat
Has a powerfully solid built body, short legs with broad paws and strong claws with course, dark brown fur. Its head has short ears, small eyes and a large naked nose. A burrowing species and largely nocturnal but may be seen grazing in the sun in cooler days.
Tasmanian Pademelon
Tasmania’s smaller wallaby species with dense dark-brown or grey-brown fur above and reddish-brown underneath. Males are much larger than females and are considerably more muscular in forearms and chest. A Tasmanian endemic and nocturnal species which shelters in dense vegetation during the day. Feeds on grasses, herbs and taller shrubs.
Brush-tail Possum
The size of a domestic cat with pointed face, long oval ears, pink nose and bushy black tail. There are three main colour variations: silver grey, black and gold all with very thick soft fur. It is a nocturnal semi-arboreal marsupial and feeds on the ground and in trees.
Bennett’s Wallaby

Tasmanian Wilderness Tours & Conservation

The Tasmanian wombat population is currently under siege with the infestation of the sarcoptic mite.

The sight of a wombat infected by sarcoptic mange is heart breaking — the burrowing mites take up residence causing continual scratching and irreparable damage to the skin and hair loss. Ulcers and deep lesions develop which then cause secondary infection.

Wombats infected with the mange become blind, slow and lethargic as they battle the affliction, with the animal unable to eat and dying of starvation.

Pepper Bush Adventures are currently undertaking a continuous trail camera monitoring program to ensure that the wombats at their Quoll Patrol venue remain healthy and uninfected.

    Ben was a great guide. The two evenings at the cabins were magical, especially the friendly kangaroos. Superb outdoor dinners were an unexpected bonus. I was able to check off "see a platypus in the wild" from my bucket list. Accommodations in the Scottsdale B&B were fine. We'll do it again if we can.

    My wife Karlene and I just spent 4 days touring Tasmania with Craig of Pepper Bush Adventures. The experience was the best wildlife adventure we have ever experienced and that includes trips to Alaska, Africa, the Galapagos Islands and Iceland. Craig has a deep knowledge of the fauna, flora and wildlife that is unprecedented. As a 6th generation Tasmanian his knowledge of the bush is deeply interconnected between the ecosystems and why the wildlife thrive there. Pepper Bush can take you anywhere in Tasmania, but they have two dedicated properties that must be included in your plans. Craig cooked dinners over an open fire grill in the bush that rivaled the meals of any celebrity chef - 5 star. Then as night came we were immersed in wildlife as they came out to feed. Topping it all off Craig and his family are genuinely nice people. We just finished our 4 days and we are already talking about coming back to create more adventure with Pepper Bush!!

    We are just completing a 5-week tour of Australia, and our few days with Craig and Ben are the highlight. Our daughter Isabella has never given 10/10 to a guide before. Hugging kangaroos and seeing quolls at Craig's cabin was magical. And we saw 5 platypuses at a lake just outside Scottsdale. It was all wonderful -- many thanks!
