On our Wildlife Safari, we visit three different habitats near Byron Bay (eucalyptus forest, rainforest and grassland), to see Aussie wildlife in the wild. We guarantee that you'll see; koala, kangaroo, wallaby, flying fox and birds. We may see pademelon, echidna, tawny frogmouth, water dragons, depending on the conditions. We include; an Environmental Scientist as a guide, transport in our comfy 7 seater 4WD and a locally sourced picnic in the rainforest. If you want to feed or pat the wildlife, then, this is not the tour for you. As with all of our eco tours, we try and observe the wildlife without disturbing them.
The typical mammal sightings are: 3-6 koalas, 20-30 eastern grey kangaroos, 100's of grey headed and black flying fox, 2-6 red necked wallaby, 1-4 red-legged pademelon. Plus any number of birds such as: purple swamp hen, dusky moorhen, coot, wood duck, pacific black duck, ibis, spoonbill, egret (various species), rainbow lorikeet, scaly breasted lorikeet, kookaburra, eastern yellow robin, scrub wrens, noisy pitta, magpies, willie wagtails, currawong.
As we have to visit the wildlife where they live, there is some driving involved with this tour, which includes a 45 min drive at the start, 1 hour drive at the end and short drives with walks in-between.
