There's three essential things you need to do when visiting Australia -

1. Meet the native animals
2. Learn to throw a boomerang
3. Enjoy an authentic Australian BBQ. Yes it includes shrimp ;) We will literally "throw shrimp on the barbie". Vegetarian and vegan options are available - no worries mate!

Come and experience all these things in half a day, with your own real-life local! (Lol). This Experience is perfect for families, friends, solo travellers and anyone with a big Australian checklist and not much time to do it! In order to comply with Airbnb Animal Guidelines, guests won't be able to pet the animals or take selfies with them.

We'll meet at Manly Wharf in the morning, we'll buy you a coffee and we'll head north! We'll be driving an hour away from Sydney. To an amazing Reptile & Marsupial Park.

Here, you'll meet some FAMOUS AUSTRALIAN ANIMALS :) You'll see some friendly Kangaroos. You'll see Emus and Rainbow Lorikeets and get your photo near a Koala and MORE!

After the animals we spark up the BBQ, share some Australian wine. After this we’ll whip out some boomerangs and attempt to throw and catch them!

Hello! We're Sean, Tom, Ryan, Em & Jez :)

We've been running Experiences for over a year and really love meeting people from all over the world! Showing you the best parts of Australia (and rare native animals) has become really addictive! We've put aside most things in life to do Airbnb. See our first Experience "Hunter Valley Wine, Cheese & Kangaroos". It has the highest average rating in Australia, for anyone with over 300 reviews.

We're born and bred here in Australia - and have a lot of ways to show it off! This Experience delves into Australian animals at a wildlife park. You'll learn, with the help of our expert friends, about Aussie Animals, Aussie History, and the great Australian BBQ! Let's literally "throw some shrimp on the barbie" together! Then throw a few boomerangs, after a BBQ lunch near some Kangaroos & Emus :)
