Australian Wildlife 4WD Tour from Sydney

Emu chicks in the wild

After being picked up from your Sydney hotel, travel out of the city by luxury 4WD on this small-group tour to the Southern Highlands, just 90 minutes from Sydney.

Accompanied by your naturalist guide, learn about Australia's wildlife and environment as you go on safari to see the country's unique animals at play and at rest in their native habitats, outside of a zoo or reserve.

Be in place at dusk to see nocturnal animals emerge from their resting places to begin their day's activities. Go spotlighting in the dark to spot possums and wombats, and enjoy unexpected glimpses of animals that are more active after dark.

Search for Australia's Big 5: kangaroos, koalas, platypus, emus and wombats, plus possums, echidnas and many other native animals.

Your wildlife-spotting tour includes lunch or afternoon tea and dinner in a typical Australian hotel, one of the country's oldest pubs.

Our guide, Steve, was very knowledgeable and filled us in on an abundance of Australian history. He was also very patient and made sure we got the most out of our experience by hunting for the elusive native wildlife.

This wildlife tour was fantastic! Cliff and Nick were excellent guides. They worked hard to make it the best adventure possible, and it was perfect. They make it FUN!

Our guide Mark was affable and informative, we saw lots of wildlife, and the pub where we had dinner was great. We both greatly prefer trips with small groups and that let us get out and DO something over looking out a bus window.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Our guide was Steve and he was very informed. He knows his Australian wildlife. He goes to great lengths to make sure you see the Australian big 5. We saw all 5, but the elusive Platapus. Very scenic and beautiful.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Alles klappte, wie auf der website beschrieben tadellos. Der Fahrer und Guide war super informiert über Wildlife, Flora und Australian Life und setzte alles dran, um uns auch seltene Tiere, wie das Schnabeltier zu zeigen. Ein super Naturerlebnis mit einem kleinen walk und feinem Essen, alles inbegriffen.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

I really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about Australia's wildlife and history. Steve, our guide, was excellent and very knowledgable and led us to Kangaroos, Wallabies, Wallaroos, Wombats, Galahs and other birds, lizards and koalas. We didn't get to see the platypus, but we gave it the old college try, Dinner at the pub in Berrima was excellent. A most enjoyable day and a good value.

A fun filled day with an excellent guide. We spotted a Koala (although when he spotted us he turned his back on us!), numerous kangaroos and got very close to numerous wombats. The food included in the oldest licenced pub was delicious. I would have no hesitation in recommending this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

A great day out and Cliff was a super guide. Good fun with the highlight hunting possums in the dark, although finding any Koalas I think wishful thinking. Good wombat hunting and kangaroo seeing.
A long day but we really enjoyed it, food in the pie shop and pub very good indeed, in all very well worth doing and we were lucky to have a good convivial bus group of eight from other countries, so many laughs. Good photo opportunities and memorable.
