Be escorted through the sheer valley escarpments in a luxury 4WD vehicle, on explorations of the nocturnal world.
Heading out in a 4WD touring vehicle, this tour provides a memorable opportunity to observe some of Australia’s unique wildlife when they are most active. As the sun goes down, many of our smaller, less common animals emerge from their burrows, nests, tree hollows and dens to start foraging and browsing throughout the night. Your guide will use their knowledge of the reserve to seek out the best places to encounter possums, wombats, gliding marsupials and owls and to observe the nocturnal behaviour of kangaroos, wallabies and wallaroos. On a clear night, this activity includes an informative tour of the Australian night sky. The remote nature of the reserve provides a spectacular opportunity to experience the southern sky free of the competing lights of cities and towns. Your guide will share some interesting scientific insights into visible planets, stars and even our nearest neighbouring galaxies, as well as a combination of mythology and star lore from around the world.
The tour will include hot beverages and light snacks prepared by our culinary team and served on the reserve. Bookings are essential. Comfortable and warm outdoor clothing appropriate to the season, and covered footwear is recommended.
