See the iconic penguins waddling by as you absorb this stunning coastal environment. Observe koalas at close range from a treetop boardwalk or greet migratory mutton-birds arriving on a flight from Alaska.

Head inland for a close encounter of the koala kind or take in a sunset at the picturesque Rhyll Inlet amongst flocks of migratory birds.
