I am frequently leading nature tours through the area and I have a good knowledge of the surroundings. The tours will only ever be a small group and always designed to give the best experience possible!

In my private time I love being in the outdoors and am almost constantly surrounded by nature, either in the wilderness or the beach.

Pete was exactly on time for the tour and was well prepared. He was very knowledgeable about the animals and answered a lot of questions. I did not feel rushed or out of place even though I was his only guest that day. We got to see multiple koalas and take wonderful active photos of the kangaroos. It was a wonderful experience.

I went on this tour and saw a ton of kangaroos. Pete made it worthwhile, as he’s very passionate about wildlife and it shows. A woman on the trails even commented on how well-informed Pete was. He was super helpful and the ride situation was a breeze. This tour is highly recommended!
