Southern Highlands wildlife tours, New South Wales

Southern Highlands wild life tours

This is an amazing pocket of Australia, unique for its prolific and diverse wildlife. You won’t be visiting zoos or nature parks to look at bored, domesiticated animals – rather, we use several thousand acres of private farms and bushland to see the animals in their natural state – feeding, fighting, mating and nurturing.

We’re in search of Australia’s own “Big 5″ – kangaroos, koalas, platypus, emus & wombats – though there’s plenty more animals, reptiles and birds to see. This is a day tour with a difference, departing Sydney at lunch time and returning around 10.30pm, so we can show you the animals when you’re most likely to see them. We’ll search for koalas as we walk amongst the Grey Gum forests, look for platypus by the riverbanks, and drive through the paddocks in our 4WD following emus, kangaroos and wombats.

In the evening, after a hearty, country-style dinner in one of Australia’s oldest pubs, we go spot-lighting in search of Australia’s vast array of nocturnal animals – possums, gliders, wombats and birds.
