It is difficult to find wildlife safaris in Australia, let alone quality guides. Echidna is both. On the Great Ocean Road you will see more wildlife than if you take the standard day tour in a large group on a bus. They have researchers in the field who locate koalas so that

Dear Anastasia V, Thank you so much for taking the time and care to write such an incredible review. We take great pride in the knowledge and passion that our guides bring to all our tours. You're right, the Great Ocean Road tour is a fantastic opportunity to see a lot of wildlife and spend more time seeing koalas, kangaroos and emus, as well as amazing birdlife. The varied land and seascapes provide a broad range of environments for Australian animals to thrive in. As part of our ongoing research and preservation of habitats, we invite the tour guests to participate in an ongoing project. Thank you for being involved by removing the invasive weed Boneseed, making it easier for the koalas to move between trees. We are thrilled and grateful that you enjoyed our tour so much. All the best from the team at Echidna Walkabout - Janine, Roger, Caz, Martin, Bart, Kirby, Beck, Caitlin, Jordan, Tracey, Hayley, Dan, Lorena, Asitha, Amy, Lynn, Ed, Simon and Maria.
