Nature Touring


Koala

Australia is home to some of the most unique animals in the world.

 

We'll take you into rainforests, deserts and open eucalypt forests to observe wildlife in their natural habitat during the day and at night. Activities after dark are essential because most of Australia's mammals are nocturnal.

For the most diverse range of Australian wildlife, visit the tropics of northern Queensland, the Top End of the Northern Territory and Kimberley region of Western Australia; the deserts of Central Australia and South Australia; the temperate regions within New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and southern Western Australia; and the cool temperate island state of Tasmania.
