Travel with Araucaria Ecotour's wildlife experts from Brisbane to rainforests, bushland, wetlands, beaches, mountains and outback on small group tours, all with advanced eco-certification. Seek kangaroos, koalas, platypus, bats, dolphins, forest birds, waterbirds, raptors, reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
Their emphasis is on helping you gain a deeper understanding of the wildlife's diversity, behaviour and ecology and what makes it so different from other regions
Day tours include wildlife-viewing, bird-watching (novice to experienced, good bird variety but emphasis more on bird ecology, behaviour and photography than intensive life-listing) and Coochiemudlo, a scenic little island near Brisbane.
The wildlife overview tour is a kind of mini-course introducing major groups of Australian wildlife and ecosystems while visiting a variety of habitats and a wildlife park.
Outback tours are run on-demand in Spring and Autumn.
Custom tours are possible.
All ages and fitness levels are welcome on most tours. Walking is gentle, with emphasis on viewing, learning and photography. Seniors, families, students and special interest groups are happily catered for. Special diets and other needs (including lightweight wheel-chair) can be accommodated. Pickup is usually from Brisbane City or the inner southern suburbs.
They practice environmentally sound procedures and contribute to wildlife conservation and research
