What's it all about?

Sunrise with Wallabies Tour is one of Australia's iconic wildlife experiences, where Eastern Grey Kangaroos and Agile Wallabies come onto the beach to feed on mangrove seed pods. Nowhere else in the wild will you get so close to Kangaroos and Wallabies. Such a wonderful opportunity to capture a magical moment of sunrise on the beach with our national symbol, and reflect on our role in looking after Australia natural beauty.  Now with our own Ranger- Ranger Sam, you can be kitted with headsets (or bring your own) and while you are taken on an exciting and educational journey - everything to do with these precious Australian icons.
