Extra night - where to go/stay in north west

We've got an extra night around north west and trying to decide where to stay and what animals to be close to at dusk but not too far from Launceston. So wildlife experiences - we'll have been to the Trowunga wildlife park and Devils at cradle, and platypus house near Launceston. We will be driving back from Stanley towards Launceston. So for a great dusk wildlife experience thinking Latrobe, lillico, narawntapu, Low Head? We don't like to drive too far at night so we'll pick the experience and then pick accommodation from there. Advice appreciated, Thanks!

You could do a couple from your list. I'd go to Narawntapu before sunset for the wombats and wallabies, then continue on to Low Head for the penguins after that. The drive from Low Head to Launceston is easy in the dark.

I like Ulverstone and areas like that like Gunns plains cave or leven canyon near there. and Deloraine is very pretty- Rasberries, chocolate shops, cherry sheds, cheese all on the way to Deloraine which is a pretty little town with nice accomodation and a lovely caravan park.

Quamby estate is nice at Hagley if you like fancy. . Wynyard near table cape is nice. Even Burnie with. The penguin viewing is a great stop at sunset.

Boat harbour near table cape is also pretty if you love a beach.
