Make your holiday extraordinary with our once-in-a-lifetime add-on – Susan d’Arcy opens her little brag book. Everyone wants a “unique” travel experience, which isn’t easy, given that it’s not unique if everyone does it. Now, though, tour operators are increasingly offering tailor-made add-ons to their holidays that really are very, very special.

A Tasmanian Devil encounter

Unfortunately, wildlife doesn’t work on commission, as those who have tumbled around in trucks not spotting tigers, or bounced about in boats not watching whales, will know.

So what are the chances of getting up close and personal with Australia’s famously elusive Tasmanian devil? Well, odds on with Geoff King. He takes only a handful of tourists at a time to a remote shack, where he has developed a foolproof method of attracting the world’s largest marsupial (it involves roadkill and a long rope). After a delicious seafood feast, the lucky few get to witness a compelling display of the most appalling table manners as the devils crunch, tear and shred their way through their supper of carrion — even munching through the teeth.
