The place of magical emerald light,
Where penguins are often in sight;
Here, red beast is on alert,
But still, freely, the devils lurk.

Name the place. :)

Are you in

Tasmania?

The place of magical emerald light,

You can see the Aurora Australis from Tasmania

Where penguins are often in sight;

And it’s far enough south to see penguins too

Here, red beast is on alert,

Maybe red kangaroos, which aren't native to Tasmania but can be found there? Or possibly the Tasmanian tiger, which was thought to be extinct...? Per OP, this is the Red Lion on the flag of Tasmania. Thanks!! :D

But still, freely, the devils lurk.

Tasmanian devils

  • $\begingroup$ Damn! Was it that easy? :D Correct answer, +1, all is good, except the part with the red beast. Contrary to Tasmanian devils, this beast doesn't live in wild in Tasmania. Can you maybe get it? $\endgroup$ – GileBrt Sep 24 '18 at 17:14
  • $\begingroup$ @GileBrt second try for the red beast! Thanks very much! Devil + Geography is usually a good leader towards this answer personally, but I did enjoy the riddle! :D $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Sep 24 '18 at 17:19
  • $\begingroup$ Not really, but a nice guess. The red beast is referring to rot13(gur erq yvba ba gur synt bs Gnfznavn). Congrats on your solve! :) $\endgroup$ – GileBrt Sep 25 '18 at 7:57
