See Koalas and Kangaroos in the Wild with Echidna Walkabout Nature Tours! Interact with wild animals in their natural habitats on this full day, fully-inclusive small group eco-tour, led by an experienced Wildlife Guide.

Walk through natural bushland to meet wild koalas, then learn about each one's history and social life from your Wildlife Guide and Koala Researcher. Help collect important data and make a difference to koala habitat.

Join wild mobs of Kangaroos on the plains and in open forests. Their natural instinct is to flee humans, but with care they often get close enough to take photographs and observe their complex social life.

Help your guide record sightings of all wildlife that you see.

The natural environments you will visit are also home to parrots, fairy-wrens, emus, honeyeaters, possums, wallabies and lizards. Your Wildlife Guide will help you understand the animals, and how to find them.

All participants will receive a certificate of thanks for helping wildlife, and an opportunity to stay in touch with each of the Koalas seen on the day.

The tour is vehicle-based, with short walks during the day; includes a substantial picnic lunch and pick up/drop off to Melbourne city.
