Welcome to the Wildlife of Australia

Founders Roger and Janine believe in travel to help nature

Janine Duffy & Roger Smith : Founders of Echidna Walkabout

"We invite you to join our wildlife journey........

Our journey began in 1993 running day tours tours in an ex-army Landrover.

We now operate multi-day wildlife conservation journeys across Australia and the Landrover is long gone (but fondly remembered).

Meticulously planned, sophisticated wildlife experiences create a sense of wonder, an understanding and an appreciation of the power of positive conservation to bring about a better world for wildlife.

We invite you to join our ongoing journey.
