Private Picnic Experience for Two

Embark on an exclusive private tour at Raptor Refuge, where a special occasion awaits. Weather permitting, delight in a unique experience by the pond, near the eagle flight aviary—a breathtaking setting for a gourmet Tasmanian picnic hamper. Indulge in locally sourced delights, including cheeses, biscuits, chocolates, and hot/cold beverages, all produced within a 10 km radius, as the eagle flies.

Situated just 30 minutes from Hobart, Raptor Refuge welcomes you with a meet and greet featuring a Tasmanian masked owl. A 90-minute guided tour follows, introducing you to magnificent wedge-tailed eagles, falcons, owls, and other raptors.

Continue your journey with a secluded picnic amid the refuge’s beautiful grounds, offering uninterrupted views of spectacular eagles, falcons, and owls. A meticulously arranged picnic setup awaits, adorned with locally sourced Tasmanian cheeses, biscuits, chocolate, wine, and a hot flask thermos filled with an assortment of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.

Absorb the serene ambiance and enjoy an additional 60 minutes of private viewing of our awe-inspiring raptors after your guided tour. This special occasion promises a memory that will linger forever.
