Four days with the best of Australia's wildlife!

Connect with nature on this fully-inclusive small group journey into the wildlife-rich forests of southeast Australia's coastal wilderness.

Help conserve the beautiful places and wildlife you see.  Spend a little time on a glorious beach removing fishing nets that trap fish, birds and sea mammals.

Find koalas in magnificent stands of giant eucalypt forest, walk in rainforest listening for lyrebirds, watch Sea-Eagles soar along untouched ocean beaches and spot huge Goanna lizards beside secluded rivers and waterways.  Your highly experienced Wildlife Guide will show you where to look for wild wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas, parrots, cockatoos, black swans and many other animals. Along the coast and estuaries we often see Australian Fur Seals, White-bellied Sea-Eagles and Pelicans.

Several of our threatened species live in this area, and we will be taking particular note of any sightings of Hooded Plover, Little Tern, Little & Intermediate Egret, Lewin's Rail, Royal Spoonbill, Powerful Owl, Blue-billed Duck, Sooty Oystercatcher and Glossy Black-cockatoo.

Share this remote area with your experienced Wildlife Guide and each night return to the comforts of owner-operated lodge-style accommodation.

Just by being there, guests are helping wildlife. Part of every tour cost goes to our Wildife Atlassing Project – an Australia-wide wildlife monitoring effort conducted by Birdlife Australia and the CSIRO. At the end of the journey all participants will receive a certificate of thanks for helping wildlife, a full species list of everything they've seen, and the satisfaction of knowing they have given something back to the environments and animals visited.
