Travel to Australia and enjoy an Australia Wildlife Safari. Explore the bio-diverse forests of East Gippsland, Australia’s southeast coastal wilderness.
Your 4-day adventure gives you the chance to watch Australia’s wildlife in their natural habitats. Your wildlife guide will show you where to find a range of wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies, parrots, echidnas, cockatoos, black swans and more!
Take an active part in the area’s conservation efforts by assisting with fishing net removal from a beautiful beach. This work helps to prevent marine entanglements of sea mammals, fish, and birds. This is optional, but a very rewarding way to make a difference on your adventure. You can also help with various activities in the wonderful locations you visit on this safari.
Other exciting highlights of your tour include:
