Safari Overview

Learn more on the Trip Itinerary page.

Tour three states of southeastern Australia: Queensland, South Australia, and Tasmania to experience the best of its wildlife and scenery. Begin in spectacular Lamington National Park, with three nights at famous O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat. Close encounters with the resident wildlife will include amazing views of crimson rosellas, king parrots, satin and regent bowerbirds, as well as endemic marsupials. Travel to Kangaroo Island for two days of remarkable scenery and wildlife, including koalas, echidnas, sea lions, a host of new birds and, of course, kangaroos. The grand finale is a full six days in Tasmania for an in-depth look at its unique flora and fauna at Bruny Island, Cradle Mountain, and Mount Field and Narawntapu National Parks. Not only is Bruny Island, in southern Tasmania, your guide Tonia’s home, it is also the place to see endangered forty-spotted pardalote, and other Tasmanian endemic birds. After dark you can also see eastern quolls and little penguins. Spend one evening in hopes of seeing Tasmanian devils, something few people on this earth have the chance to experience. Enjoy a beautiful forest reserve with perfect streams for platypus, then visit Narawntapu National Park for great views of wombats, wallabies, and pademelons. We’re excited to offer this trip in partnership with Inala Nature Tours owner, Australian biologist, and guide, Tonia Cochran. Join Tonia as she leads the group throughout these rich wildlife areas of Australia, assisted by some of the best resident naturalists in the region.
