Conservation in action....(read more)

Want to help wild animals whilst learning about them? These day tours can fulfil your dreams and help wildlife at the same time.

Our Koalas & Kangaroos tour has been operating since 1992 and has helped countless Koalas. The Sunset version of that tour means you are in the bush during the bewitching hours when the wildlife comes out to enjoy the evening.

If you’re into studying wild animals join one of our Koala Research tours OR get down and dirty on our Koala Recovery Experience.

“Echidna Walkabout’s driving principle is positive conservation. We believe people protect what they know, and what they love.” Janine Duffy, Echidna Walkabout.

Which is why every one of our tours has a conservation action. By choosing one of these tour you will help nature while you enjoy it.
