This is an in-the-wild experience, travelling to the Southern Highlands, just 90 minutes south of Sydney. There are no zoos or nature parks, just several thousand hectares of unspoilt and spectacular natural bushland and private farmland. Walk through towering forests of Grey Gums in search of koalas, look for platypus along the riverbanks, drive through woodlands as mobs of kangaroos & emus feed. After dinner, go nightspotting for nocturnal wombats, gliders & possums. We seek out the animals when they’re most active, with a noon to evening tour that includes lunch or afternoon tea (varies seasonally, confirmed on booking) and a hearty country style dinner in one of Australia’s oldest country inns. You will not forget this intimate experience in a customized Mercedes 4WD with a small group of up to 10.

Our guest enjoy a visit to West Head Lookout, a 2.5 hour scenic discovery cruise through the National Park waterways, and indigenous interpretation at several ancient Aboriginal sites (some only accessible by water), a gourmet bush tucker lunch and on-board cultural presentation.

6 DAYS/5 NIGHTS in Northern Territory Top End Highlights Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory and a major gateway to northern Australia. The city has an incredible vibe, with a diverse and multicultural population. A city that has experienced a number of makeovers due to tropical cyclones and encounters with Japanese bombs in WWII. Kakadu National Park, home to stunning landscapes of towering peaks, monsoon-fed rainforests, dramatic waterfalls, pandanus forests and cycad-fringed pools. Kakadu contains one of the greatest concentrations of rock art sites in the world and constitutes one of the longest historical records of any group of people. Far more than just a township, the Katherine region, stretches from the Western Australian border to the remote eastern coastline, taking in numerous Aboriginal communities. Its diverse landscapes and unique ecosystems set the scene for outback adventure activities like fishing, canoeing, bushwalking, bird watching, camping and four-wheel driving.
