Araucaria Ecotours offers quality wildlife experiences designed by a research ecologist with PhD in zoology and long experience in enjoyable educational presentations and excursions for all ages.

Wildlife experts take small-group tours (usually from Brisbane) to mountains, rainforests, bushland, wetlands, beaches and genuine outback habitats to seek kangaroos, koalas, birds, reptiles, frogs and other wildlife and enhance understanding of their ecology and what makes our wildlife different from other regions.

Day tours include minimal-impact wildlife-viewing (kangaroos, koalas, bats, birds, lizards, glow worms etc.), bird-watching in forest and wetlands (beginners welcome), and an attractive little island close to Brisbane.

A 3-day wildlife overview tour introduces Australia’s major groups of wildlife and ecosystems while viewing wildlife in a variety of habitats.

Multi-day outback tours run in Spring and Autumn

Custom tours (day-trip or multi-day) are possible.

The proprietors contribute to various wildlife conservation and research projects, and guests sometimes have an opportunity to be citizen scientists or conservation volunteers.

All ages and fitness levels are welcome on most tours. Walking is gentle, with emphasis on viewing, learning and photography. Seniors, families, students and special interest groups and special Diest are happily catered for.

Weekend nature activities are for families, groups or individuals and include games, arts and crafts and introduction to pursuits such as birdwatching, plant identification and basic ecology.

All regular tours have advanced eco-certification.
