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 for 28 years 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.
