Wildlife Tours

Your appreciation and understanding of our local wildlife will be far greater with an expert guide taking you on a private tour. Wild animals are naturally shy, and many are nocturnal, so a private tour is the best chance to get to see them. Gliders, possums, wallabies, bandicoots and wombats live at Wildside, as well as microbats, frogs and nocturnal birds.

You can choose between a daytime wildlife detectives tour where your guide will teach you to look for evidence of wildlife - their scats, scratches, diggings and calls. From grasshoppers to gliders, your guide will teach you so much about how our environment functions. Or, you may prefer to go spotlighting at night and see how many different animals you can find up in the trees. Learn to identiry the calls of the animals, insects, frogs and birds active at night.

Private tours are priced at $195- per person and run for 2 hours. All equipment such as binoculars and headsets are provided for you.
