Approximately 5 hours
Experience the thrill of seeing majestic, native Australian animals in the wild on this eco-tour, which showcases the wildlife and wonders of the Australian bush. Your knowledgeable guide leads this tour with the support of experienced wildlife scouts who ensure you have the best possible sightings of wildlife in the wild.
Leave the city via the Westgate Bridge with wide views across Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay.
Head across the broad grasslands of the great Western Plains and into an exclusive open-range sanctuary, set against the beautiful backdrop of the You Yangs Range.
A short drive from Serendip, you'll venture into the You Yang Ranges National Park to walk among the gum trees and search for koalas in a natural eucalyptus forest. Spend time on the savannah grasslands and in the bush around billabongs (waterways) in the company of wild kangaroos, emus and many species of birds.
Visit a wild koala study area, where research is being carried out into the behavior of these beautiful, charismatic marsupials. Part of your tour cost supports this important research. On short, easy strolls, your guide will share with you the habits and habitats of Australia's gentle wildlife in the unique Australian bush. You'll witness these famous Australian animals going about their daily lives in the wild -- a world away from zoos.
You will not touch or hold the animals. Water is provided once during a refreshment break on this tour; bring a small bottle of fresh water with you. Due to fire danger, smoking is not permitted at any time during this tour. Wear closed-toe walking shoes. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed; however, in 12 years of operation, this tour has enjoyed a 100% success rate for spotting both kangaroos and koalas in the Australian bush.
