WILDLIFE JOURNEY - 4 DAY ECO-TOUR OF FAR EAST GIPPSLAND
Jump on our tour bus which leaves at 8am from Melbourne and visit far East Gippsland.
Find koalas, King Parrots & Yellow-tailed Black-cockatoos in magnificent stands of giant eucalypt forest, walk in rainforest listening for lyrebirds, watch Sea-Eagles soar along untouched ocean beaches and spot huge Goanna lizards beside secluded rivers and waterways in Victoria’s rarest and richest wilderness – far East Gippsland.
East Gippsland is one of Australia’s best birdwatching sites, with over 330 species recorded. It is also an area that was fought for by Janet Rice and many other Greens in the 1980’s, resulting in massive additions to National Parks. 88% of the region is state-owned land, much of that in conservation reserves.
Help conserve the beautiful places and wildlife you see. Spend a little time on a glorious beach removing fishing nets that trap fish, birds and sea mammals.
Share this remote area with your experienced Wildlife Guide and each night return to the comforts of owner-operated lodge-style accommodation.
