Search for iconic Aussie wildlife both during the day and at night

Join us on a day/night tour on which you will see both diurnal and nocturnal animals in their natural habitat. Please note these don’t have to be done on the same day.

Wildlife Safari

Come with us to see Australian wildlife in the wild – not a zoo or sanctuary.

Our Wildlife Safari takes you to three different habitats near Byron Bay.

You’ll visit eucalyptus forest, rainforest and grassland to discover the animals that live there.

We guarantee you’ll see a koala or two, a mob of kangaroo, a whole colony of flying fox and many species of bird. If conditions are right you may also see pademelon, echidna, tawny frogmouth and water dragons.

You’ll journey in style and comfort, either in our cozy eight-seater hybrid vehicle or our spacious 12-seater bus, depending on the group size for the tour. With an environmental scientist as your guide. For lunch? A picnic of locally-sourced goodness.

Learn to spot the different between a kangaroo and wallaby, or a grey-headed flying fox and a black one.

Along the way you will be amazed at the abundant birdlife. Native hens, ducks and waders; noisy colourful parrots; iconic kookaburra; magpies, currawong and tiny flitting wrens and robin, are just some of the birdlife we see on this tour.

We are an award winning eco-tour company and we are passionate about what we do. As with all our eco tours, it is our goal to observe but not disturb the wildlife. If you want to feed or pat the wildlife, this is not the tour for you.

On this tour we travel to where the animals live so it involves a bit of driving. We start with a 45 minute drive to our first stop and end the day with a 1 hour drive back to Byron Bay. In between there are short drives and walks. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements when you book.

Night Vision Walk

Our patented Night Vision Bushwalk 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’ll wear 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 Bushwalk. On a typical night we see five species. Our regular sightings include possum, pademelon, bandicoot, tawny frogmouth, leaf tailed gecko, fucsipes, melomys, 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.
