Explore the Australian rainforest at night using night vision technology for an insider’s look at the animals that live there. Our patented Night Vision Walk is the only one of its kind in the world! Imagine exploring the Australian rainforest at night, searching for nocturnal wildlife. Instead of wielding a torch you’re incognito, wearing special night vision goggles. This is military grade technology that lets you see animals as they go about their business. Because we don’t use bright lights we are less intrusive and that means we can be more connected to what is going on all around us. For many of our clients, seeing the forest in the dark is an enlightening experience. After your walk enjoy a hot chocolate gazing up at the starry night. Heaven! Nights with less moonlight are best for a Night Vision Walk. On a typical night we see five species. Our regular sightings include possum, pademelon, bandicoot, tawny frogmouth, fucsipes, micro bats and frogs. We do our very best to give you a great experience, but of course, we are dealing with nature so we cannot guarantee animal sightings. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements when you book. These walks are not recommended for people with epilepsy.

This tour was lovely and peaceful, just what I needed after the chaos of travelling! Our guide, Wendy was absolutely lovely, friendly, and chatty. She gave us a quick run-down what was going on at the crystal castle and let us explore on our own time. We were left with more than enough time to enjoy the gardens, attend some meditations, explore different crystals, have a bite to eat, and do a little crystals shopping!

Had a great day with our guide, Tom, who was very knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about the animals. We saw pademelon, wallabies, kangaroos, koalas and flying foxes, all in the wild. There were only four of us on the tour which was nice. Lunch was also good. We enjoyed this trip and it was great to see so many animals.

The boat tour to the Julia rocks alone is worth the money There is a lot to see turtles , leopardsharks, etc. The guides give you freedom to explore, but they always have you in view, which gives you a very safe feeling an absolute recommendation, great team would be happy to come back again

such an amazing experience. I would say better than the coral reefs in terms of seeing marine life. Saw so many tiger sharks, a manta ray and two sea turtles. It was amazing and the guides/biologists were exceptional. Highly recommend!!

Great activity, our guide was very friendly with a wealth of knowledge.
