Walk among groups of wild kangaroos. Visit a forest in a National Park that is home to a large and healthy population of wild koalas. The Koala Research Project ensures that on most days you can spot several of these adorable creatures.
Very accessible from Melbourne's city centre, these surroundings provide the perfect introduction to Australia's unique wildlife and indigenous culture. The area you pass through shows the great importance of the Indigenous Peoples and the Wathaurong Tribe. Freshwater lakes and nearby billabongs provided a rich source of food for them, and some signs of their occupation still remain. Your guide will share their knowledge with you.
You will be served a picnic lunch, al fresco in the sanctuary, including fruit and cakes, coffee and delicious Australian 'Billy tea'.
