Wildlife in the Wild [SYD55]
Day Tour, Wildlife in the Wild. Sydney, Australia

This is an exceptional opportunity to venture into the Australian Bush in search of Australia’s iconic native animals. We like to call them Australia’s Big 5! –
Koalas, Kangaroos, Platypus, Emus & Wombats – all classic Australian natives that you won’t find in any other place on earth.

This is an in-the-wild experience, traveling to private farmland and swathes of quintessential, pristine Australian Bushland in the Southern Highlands, just 90 minutes south of Sydney.

Your small group, maximum 10, will travel in a luxury 4WD equipped for great wildlife-viewing with a specialist Naturalist Guide to interpret all. Walk through towering forests of Grey Gums in search of koalas, look for platypus in the rivers, and drive through woodlands & pastures as mobs of kangaroos and emus feed.

After dinner, a night-spotting foray lets you see nocturnal wombats, gliders and possums. We follow Nature’s guidelines, seeking out the animals when they’re most active, with a noon to evening tour that includes a light lunch (winter months) or afternoon tea (summer months) and hearty country-style dinner in one of Australia’s oldest country inns.

This is an exceptional way to see Australian wildlife in its natural environment.
