Australian Wildlife 4WD Tour from Sydney

Koala with a guide

Your luxury 4WD vehicle picks you up from your Sydney hotel to start your Australian wildlife tour. Drive about 90 minutes to reach the Southern Highlands where many Australian native animals can often be found in the wild.

Your expert naturalist guide shares informative commentary about Australia’s history and wildlife as you visit various scenic locales to spot koalas, kangaroos, emus, wombats and the shy platypus, along with other likely suspects such as possums and echidnas.

At dusk, your guide takes you to the best places to see nocturnal creatures as they wake up for the night. With careful use of a spotlight, your guide can locate critters such as wombats and possums as they become active after sunset.

Your small-group tour travels off the beaten track in a luxury 4WD vehicle that provides a comfortable ride. Enjoy frequent stops for photo ops along with rest breaks including lunch or afternoon tea. Soak up the ambiance of a typical establishment in the Australian outback when you have dinner at one of the nation's oldest pubs.

After a day of Australian wildlife encounters, return to Sydney in the evening where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Zoe was so amazing. She so loves her job and the animals. She enthusiasm was so refreshing and it was so amazing to see the animals out in the wide and Zoe made sure we got great pictures and up close encounters with the wombats and kangaroos. It was an amazing trip. I would recommend this tour. It was a little costly but was worth it thanks to Zoe. We even seen a platypus.

Great day and evening in Australian country. Nothing so wild, but seeing koala and a glimpse of platypus in its natural habitat was fantastic and made this trip worth every penny.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2018

Excellent guide and tour. However, very long trip to the reserve and not many koalas visible.

Karen R

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2018

This tour was just what we had hoped it would be. Wildlife can not be guaranteed and we were a little worried but, it exceeded our expectations. We saw a koala, a platypus, kangaroos, some boxing, wombats, possums, sugar gliders, a kookaburra, gilas that were pink and gray, and cockatoos. This trip was worth every penny to us. We later went on a land trip with 33 others people for 21 days and never saw a kangaroo in the wild. So glad we took a chance on this trip. And the dinner was delicious too.

Very knowledgeable driver/tour guide. The tour was above our expectations. We were able to see most of the animals in their habitat. Would recommend this tour as seeing the animals in the bush is a bonus
