Connect with nature on Echidna Walkabout Nature Tours four day, fully-inclusive small group journey into the wildlife-rich forests of south-east Australia's coastal wilderness.

Visit magnificent stands of giant eucalypt forest, walk in rainforest, along untouched ocean beaches and beside secluded rivers and waterways in search of wallabies, koalas, goanna lizards, gliding possums, lyrebirds, parrots, black swans and many other birds.

Help conserve the beautiful places and wildlife you see. Your Wildlife Guide will teach you to find wildlife, record them, and later submit your sightings to Australia's highly respected bird and mammal Atlases, this task is easy, very enjoyable and essential for conserving the native animals.

Monitor and record the behaviour of Koalas, using our special method of non-intrusive identification. Spend a little time on a glorious beach removing fishing nets that trap fish, birds and sea mammals.

Share this remote area with your experienced Wildlife Guide and each night return to the comforts of owner-operated lodge-style accommodation.

Tour includes three breakfasts, four lunches, three dinners and three nights at a friendly, very comfortable homestead overlooking the Snowy River.

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.
