Araucaria Ecotour’s wildlife experts take small group tours from Brisbane to the mountains, rainforests and bushland of the Scenic Rim, wetlands, beaches, and outback, to seek kangaroos, koalas, platypus, bats, forest birds, waterbirds, reptiles, frogs and other wildlife and enhance your understanding of their ecology, behaviour, and conservation issues, and what makes our wildlife and ecosystems so different from other regions.

Day tours include wildlife-viewing, bird-watching (novice to experienced, emphasis more on watching behaviour than ticking lists) and Coochiemudlo Island with its quiet sandy beaches, mangroves and coastal forests.

The 3-day wildlife overview tour introduces Australia’s major groups of wildlife and ecosystems while viewing many species in a variety of habitats (from mountain to coast) and a wildlife park.

Outback tours are run on-demand in Spring and Autumn.

Custom tours are possible with sufficient advance notice.

All ages and fitness levels are welcome on most tours. Walking is gentle, with an emphasis on viewing, learning and photography. Seniors, families, students and special interest groups are happily catered for. Special diets and other needs (including lightweight wheel-chair) can be accommodated.

Pickup is usually from Brisbane City or the inner southern suburbs.

Environmental sustainability is a priority, and all regular tours have advanced eco-certification. The proprietors contribute to wildlife conservation and research projects, and on some tours guests can join in as citizen scientists or conservation volunteers.
