Gippsland High Country Tours shows you Australia's wildlife, the diverse, shy and often elusive with many species rarely seen by the casual visitor.
Led by a Naturalist guide, discover many fascinating facts about wildlife while valuable data is collected on distribution and ecology of species to help ensure they enjoy a more secure future.
Have great fun and join in your choice of activities which include birdwatching, trapping and release of small mammals for data collection, identifying animal tracks and traces, searching for frogs, evening spotlight walks and more.
Two different destinations with Gippsland High Country Tours.
The Snowy River National Park boasts magnificent scenery and is host to a diversity of wildlife habitats, however there has been little documentation of wildlife species present in some parts of the Park. Enjoy lush ferny Mountain Ash forest, dry open woodland with great views over the Snowy Valley and other rich and varied forest habitats.
The Haunted Stream is a beautiful river valley with a haunting history. Bushfire in the past decade has altered habitats and our survey is to record post fire response of wildlife as the bush regenerates.
