Description:

G'day mate! My name is John Oliver and I am the tour guide for Sydney...

G'day mate! My name is John Oliver and I am the tour guide for Sydney Wildlife Tours and I am here to tell you about our unique family business. We are the small-group Wildlife Tour specialists and we offer you a choice of amazing and affordable tours. Our motto is "taking you to places nobody else goes" and we pride ourselves on visiting places most visitors to Sydney and Australia have never heard of and would otherwise have never had the chance to see. Many visitors are only aware of, and visit, such a small percentage of what this incredible coastline has to offer, and are often restricted to where other Tour companies take them. This is why we created Sydney Wildlife Tours - to show people that there is so much more to Sydney and New South Wales than just the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Bondi Beach, Blue Mountains and the Hunter Valley. We take no more than 10 people on a tour to ensure a quality and personalized experience at all times. On a tour with Sydney Wildlife Tours you will see and experience some truly amazing things. We have Tours to suit people of all ages, tastes and fitness levels. Some of the experiences you can choose from on our tours include; Dolphin and Whale Watching Cruises, Hiking through National Parks, hanging out with Kangaroos, Koalas, Wombats, Wallabies and native Australian Birds, along with an amazing Wine Tour. We offer a choice of one day and two day Tours and our Tours include everything - hotel pick-ups, delicious meals, snacks, refreshments, accommodation (on two day tours) and entry fees to all attractions. When you go on a trip with Sydney Wildlife Tours there are no added costs, and we pride ourselves on offering unbeatable value for money. We also provide private and highly customized Tours for the ultimate in exclusivity. Read our customer reviews here on TripAdvisor then browse through our website to see what we have to offer and come with us on a unique Australian experience you will never forget.

Symbio was our third wildlife park to visit, and was by far the very best! John was an excellent host, informative as wel as thoughtful - morning tea and lunch were delightful. Enjoyed the beautiful views of the south coast, as well as the rugged beauty of the Royal National Park. Highly recommend John's tour!

I was in Sydney for 2 weeks and this was the best tour that I went on. It's personal and you will be taken to places that other tours do not take you to. Everything from the Symbio wildlife park, to the lookout points, to the cliffs, to the beach at the park, to the aboriginal carvings were spectacular :)... More

Can't recommend this tour enough. John is an excellent host with so much information about Australia it is amazing. We were two "Londoners" in a party of 8 Americans and we all spent a wonderful day together.
