Overview
More
Try Koala spotting! See the scenic hills and beaches. We tour a big itineray of over 100 places, from rain forest to the bays. We provide sightings of many wild birds and animals and maybe some surprises! Our tour guides are mature locals, with years of observing the Island's bird life, animals and characters. Hear some great folklore, with tales of things not found in books. A fantastic experience you don't want to miss!

As part of a group of pensioners (and me not being one!) I was concerned about how ‘old’ the tour might be... I was totally wrong! The guide was so knowledgeable, the bus comfy, the route interesting and the overall experience really good. Old stories,...More

Thanks Kay, I'm glad I managed to introduce you to Maggie, and her charms. She is a special place, and with a lot of secrets for such a small island.

Thank you for leaving a review. The butterfly forest is a magical part of the island. Being here only for their short stay over winter, makes it even more magical. It is one of the highlights of the tour for me. Watching everyone's faces as...More
