Discover the animals and history of the Outback at Lake Mungo in the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area with Echidna Walkabout Nature Tours.

Travel expansive red dirt plains sprinkled with Kangaroos, Emus and Pink Cockatoos. Walk in the shade of Desert Pines searching for brilliant parrots and sleepy lizards. Climb ancient sand dunes with an Aboriginal Guide who will show you the stone tools and artefacts of his culture.

Your journey is conducted by experienced Wildlife and Aboriginal Guides who reveal Mungo's arid land wildlife and ancient Aboriginal Heritage. Wedge-tailed Eagles soar overhead and nest in the few desert trees, Falcons and Kestrels hunt low flying birds and insects. Shingleback and Bearded Dragon lizards are often seen in these delicate arid ecosystems.

Experience the peace of the Australian Outback whilst staying in the small town of Wentworth beside the junction of Australia's iconic rivers, the Murray and Darling. For two nights you will stay in the town of Wentworth overlooking bird-filled Thegoa Lagoon.

Wentworth is the perfect base to explore this magnificent area on foot and by vehicle, escorted by your personal guides. Meals are traditional Australian bush fare, a genuine taste of Australia.

On Echidna Walkabout Nature Tours you connect with nature, interact with wild animals in their natural habitats and absorb the dramatic scenery while enjoying the genuine Aussie hospitality.

See wildlife in the wild with an experienced Wildlife Guide. They will help you experience nature at its best. Each day is a new mystery and each encounter is unique.

There is something wonderful about watching a wild kangaroo hopping free across his native grassland. There is something unbelievable about watching a wild emu approach to check you out. Nothing beats watching a wild koala climb down her tree and walk along the ground in front of you!

Echidna Walkabout have been guiding international travellers on their excellent small group wildlife tours for 20 years.

Something wonderful happens every day because the animals are wild and free to do as they choose.

Most tours depart Melbourne and travel to carefully chosen wildlife locations in South Eastern Australia.

Echidna Walkabout Nature Tours have a suite of scheduled small group and private tours from one to four days in duration and offer a range of group tours for groups large and small. They can also design an itinerary to suit your needs.
