What you'll do

'We are open for business and NOT affected by the bushfires'. Come and experience the Outback Australian Bush, only an hour train ride from downtown Melbourne. On my very personal & intimate experience you will meet the most friendliest kangaroo in the world, her name is Jo & she is AMAZING! Feeding time for our wildlife is in the morning, so get in quick as it sells out fast! On my morning & afternoon experience, you will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a photo with a koala and get up close to wallabies, emus, wombats & more. Learn about the Australian indigenous culture, including a private lesson on how to throw a real boomerang! This experience is ideal for families, groups, solo travellers & anyone seeking an authentic Aussie Adventure! It includes exclusive VIP access only available on my experience at both the Aboriginal Cultural Centre & Koala Sanctuary. WILDLIFE & BEACH COMBO: Why not pack your beach towel & explore the coastal town of Torquay and its world famous beaches following your Wildlife Experience? For only an additional $50 AUD per person. Contact David before booking to add the combo. INSTAGRAM: See all my photos @kangaroojacktours ACCOMODATION: Why not add an overnight stay to your Wildlife Experience?

David

G'day, my name is David, but my friends call me 'Kangaroo Jack'. Why? Well for starters I work at the zoo, so I'm always around cuddly animals, however what is even more unique is I literally have a pet kangaroo... What? Are you serious? Absolutely, her name is Jo & she is AMAZING! Having grown up on the Victorian Surf Coast, I have a ton of knowledge of the local area, indigenous culture, native wildlife & secret spots to visit that only the locals know about. Previously, I have also spent time working in America for the Walt Disney Company. I want my guests to have a magical experience on the Great Ocean Road with an authentic Aussie, combining my passion for wildlife & environmental conservation. I'm LGBTIQ friendly & everyone is welcome on my experiences, so as my best mate Mickey Mouse would say "I hope to see you all real soon!"

Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre: The centre provides an introductory into the cultural history of the Wadawurrung traditional land owners and a native wildlife experience. The centre has a cafe and gift shop that guests can purchase authentic indigenous souvenirs. Jirrahlinga Koala & Wildlife Sanctuary: The sanctuary is Victoria's best kept secret, offering my guests the once in a lifetime experience of seeing a baby koala & kangaroo up close.
