What to Expect
After being picked up from your central Sydney hotel, meet your naturalist guide and small group. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned 4WD safari vehicle, admiring the scenery as you journey into the Southern Highlands. Accompanied by your guide, venture off-road to explore the wild bush of the highlands. Watch for Australian wildlife such as kangaroos, koalas, and wallabies, all of which inhabit the area. If you’re lucky you might even spot a platypus or emu. Your guide offers tips for spotting animals, and how to approach or take photos without disturbing them. After lunch or afternoon tea, continue your safari until dusk, when you can spot nocturnal creatures such as possums and echidnas. Finally, finish your wildlife adventure with a delicious dinner at a traditional pub in the heart of the Australian Outback—a fitting way to end the day—before being dropped off at your Sydney hotel.

we were picked up on time and spent the day searching and finding wallabys, kangaroos, Koalas,parrots and more after dinner a night time run produced more animals including many Wambats. A long day but well worth it...

What a great adventure we had with Boutique Tour guide Zoey and 6 other travelers from UK and US. It was a long day out to the bush and back, but the time went quickly with the informative and fun commentary. We didn’t see a koala or platypus, but we gave it a good try! We did
