Get up close to see Australia's native (and adorable) creatures in action! They'll steal your heart, but at least you can walk away with unforgettable pictures and memories.
Once in a lifetime experience of getting close to wild kangaroos and the endangered koalos.

Once in a lifetime experience of getting close to wild kangaroos and the endangered koalos. Guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Took time to answer all questions at your seat on the bus. Nice sit down snack with wine or beer.

Wow, this tour of Koalas and Kangaroos at Sunset was definitely a highlight of the vacation. I highly recommend it. We were taken out of the city through Little River ( Yes, Little River Band from the 80's namesake ). We were taken to a National Park and a reserve to observe a mob of kangaroos in their natural habitat. It was an amazing experience. We went to a reserve park where a guide was searching the whole day for the whereabouts of koalas in trees. She located one of them and we were taken quietly to the place. The koala was a good 30 feet up the tree, barely visible, but it was a true experience of a wild animal in nature. Read Less

Great tour guide.

Great tour guide. Lots of walking to see Koalas and Kangaroos in the wild. Maybe a little too much walking to see two Koalas in trees! Fun seeing a mob of Kangaroos.

This was an excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide. We were able to view close up kangaroos, emus, yellow-billed spoonbills, and koalas in their native habitat. Our guide gave us a good understanding of these wonderful animals.After the tour, we took the tram from the dock into the city of Melbourne. It is a lovely city with much to see and do, including a lot of public art and sculpture. We found Melbourne easy to negotiate on our own and with friendly, helpful people. We would like to return to see more of all that the city has to offer. Read Less
