  • Great tour guide, very friendly and willing to answer all questions. Made the tour a lot more personable because she wasn’t going completely off script.

  • Highly recommend! Just finished a session with Maddie. She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly & had a great sense of humour. The platypuses & echidna’s were just gorgeous. Sessions are small & intimate. We booked on line the day before & process was very smooth. 10 out of 10.
  • Excellent small group tour experience with platypus and echidna in natural styled habitats. Guide was passionate, informative and very interactive with the group. Highly recommend the drive out
