Join the educational group travel experts in Australia for an experience with famous Australian animals. Imagine seeing a mob of kangaroos bounding right past you and seeing wild Koalas in the forest of a National Park! This tour is an informative and dramatic introduction to the unique wildlife of Australia. In the company of an expert wildlife guide you will see mobs of free ranging Eastern-grey kangaroos in a natural bush setting. You will also see and learn about many other Australian animals and birds at Serendip open-range sanctuary on the vast Western Plains near Melbourne.
During a delicious Bush Lunch you will meet and talk to an Aboriginal person and learn about their culture. You’ll also hear the evocative music of the didgeridoo.
After lunch we head to a nearby national park to see Koalas in the wild. Your nature guide will share the knowledge of these wonderful pouched animals with you. Our Koala Research Project ensures we regularly have multiple sightings of these shy creatures in the wild.
At the end of the day the tour returns to Melbourne.
Note: Depending on weather, season and tour timing the wildlife experiences on this tour may be reversed so that we see the koalas first and kangaroos after lunch
