Australian Wildlife 4WD Tour from Sydney
US$ 225.88
Overview
The sweeping mountains, scenic woodlands, and native wildlife of the Southern Highlands lie just south of Sydney. On this tour, venture off-road on a 4WD wildlife safari through this scenic region. Enjoy a unique opportunity to spot kangaroos, koalas, emus, and wombats in their natural environment, and stay out after dark to look for nocturnal wildlife.
What to Expect

After being picked up from your central Sydney hotel, meet your naturalist guide and small group. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned 4WD safari vehicle, set out on a 1.5-hour drive, admiring the scenery as you journey into the Southern Highlands.

Accompanied by your guide, venture off-road to explore the wild bush of the highlands. Watch for Australian wildlife such as kangaroos, koalas, and wallabies, all of which inhabit the area. If you’re lucky you might even spot a platypus or emu. Your guide offers tips for spotting animals, and how to approach or take photos without disturbing them.

After lunch or afternoon tea, continue your safari until dusk, when you can spot nocturnal creatures such as possums and echidnas.

Finally, finish your wildlife adventure with a delicious dinner at a traditional pub in the heart of the Australian Outback—a fitting way to end the day—before being dropped off at your Sydney hotel.

Australian outback adventure

This was my first trip to Australia. The 4wd tour was awesome. Ben did a super excellent job of showing us the area and wildlife we would never have seen on our own. I look forward to doing it again some day.More

Highlight of our nine days in Australia!

Great trip!

Can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed this trip. Sydney is great, but after a few days of it I was ready to get away from the people and big city. This trip delivered what I was after. Every big city throughout the world...More

Outstanding true wildlife tour

I am so glad that I found this tour because I thought initially that with our itinerary, we would not see any of Australia’s wildlife. Our guide was Cliff whose knowledge and experience with Australia’s wildlife, plants and general all around information was outstanding. The...More

Hi - I’m not able to answer this question . Maybe call the company direct however they are very professional and doubt they would confirm your booking and cancel on you. Hope you enjoy.
