We so enjoyed this tour ... as we visited out of season, there were just the two of us with guide Greg and zoologist Renée. We felt so lucky.

You do have to book this tour, which runs on alternate days during the week, and it takes about an hour, plus extra time for answering questions. You walk on paved paths through a large area which is fenced off ... so the animals are not totally “in the wild”, but means you will see them. The little mala wallabies in particular would not survive outside the enclosure now, as they are way too friendly to feral cats and marauding dogs and foxes.

So, we saw lots of animals, including a fight between a burrowing beettong and a brush-tailed one, over a very cute female ... very unusual behaviour which interested our guide too. We also spotted bilbies and golden bandicoots. Both Greg and Renée were extremely knowledgable.

All our photos came out very red, of course, but with technology you can take out the colour for some wonderful black-and-white shots.

Fantastic way to learn and see the wildlife of the outback and Australia close at hand. Particularly the echidna who loved our feet.
The guides were both very knowledgeable and the path easy to walk.
Got loads of photos of the creatures of the night.
My only negative comment is that they need to maybe make an age restriction to be 7 years old and over because we had a baby and a toddler who whinged and cried for the whole hour which ruined it for us as not only couldn’t we hear the guide all the time but also it meant we didn’t get to experience the silence of the night and hear the animals rustling around in the under growth.
However I would happily go again - without other peoples annoying kids. The older kids were fine!

There were only my husband and myself on the night tour and it was excellent. Our guide, Bronte, was very informative and certainly knew her stuff. We had head torches with red light so could see where we were going and also any wildlife. We saw an abundance of betongs and lots of bandicoots, several echidnas and a bilby. The animals weren't too bothered by our presence and were more interested in the food provided for them. Bronte noticed that one of the bandicoots had a problem with one of its feet and was able to catch it, no mean feat in the dark, and took it back to be checked. All in all a very enjoyable tour.

Fantastic tour with knowledgeable guides ready to answer any questions you have. You get to see a fair amount of animals in the enclosure and they are used to humans so they don't run away too quickly. Goes for about an hour, closed shoes are recommended but you can get away with thongs or sandals.

Great adventure, knowledgeable guides and lots of fun. We were there on a night when a bit storm when through. Rain, lightning and thunder but the show must go on. Once you got past being a bit damp it was well worth a visit. Animals where amazing

I really enjoyed seeing the wild life that this place has to offer. There were certain snakes and lizards on display that I did not know was in Australia. It was absolutely fantastic with the photo opportunities on offer and the bird show was incredible. Never seen anything like it and would love to go and see the bird show again. Skip did an excellent job of guiding us all on the warm Alice Springs day. The pleasing thing to hear was that all the animals were all Australian Natives and had been caught around Alice Springs itself. That's a true outback nature park and giving tourists from overseas a taste of our Aussie wildlife. Great job guys

It was incredible to get so close to some of Australia's hardest to find animals. The guides were very informative and friendly. A must do if you're in Alice Springs.
