What You Can Expect
Stop at the Australian Reptile Park, located about one hour's drive outside of Sydney. Walk through informative displays that showcase a variety of species, including Australian native animals such as Tasmanian devils, platypus, wallabies and wombats. You can also feed a kangaroo or pet a koala, and check out Spider World's high-tech interactive exhibits.
After approximately 45 minutes at the park, continue your scenic drive to Port Stephens, stopping in Nelson Bay where you have about one hour on your own for lunch (own expense) before taking your afternoon dolphin cruise.
Enjoy a 1.5-hour afternoon dolphin-watching cruise that takes you directly to the best spots for sightings of wild bottlenose dolphins. Learn about the playful creatures from your onboard guide and enjoy fantastic views of the Tomaree and Yacaaba headlands as well. Bring your swim gear as there are opportunities to take a dip or ride in the boom net. Your cruise also provides complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits.

Great trip! Great bus driver! Only needed half an hour more for camel ride at the dunes.
Wonderful. I enjoy every moment of the journey. Highly recommended
The experience was extraordinary and exciting. We saw many dolphins in the crystal clear waters. The sandboarding experience was very fun and exhilarating. I would recommend this tour to others.

Well worth the money!!! It started with a very nice coach to pick us up at the hotel and on the way to our destinations, David the guide/driver, filled us in with valuable knowledge of Australian wildlife. The whole is well organised and no wasted time. It ended with a climax of sandboarding at sand dunes more than 100meters high. Wow, so exciting!!!
Thumbs up for the great tour and guide. Simply awesome! Loved it!
Right from the first moment of pickup up, Ben was a fantastic guide. He kept us well informed during the trip and we learned quite a bit about Australia that we didn't know. The tour was packed full of different activities and we were never bored. Hats off to the tour company and especially Ben for a memorable experience!
This tour was amazing!

This trip was a great day out. The buffet lunch on the ship was amazing - great food and they kept it coming so you could definitely eat as much as you wanted. The dolphins were swimming all around the boat the whole time, unfortunately none of them decided to jump out of the water though. The Wildlife park was really a cute little park - and it was fun petting the koalas.
Great trip. Julian was great
