From the moment Scott picked us up at the airport, this was a life experience for our family. He's moved back to the Island to work with the family business, and knows all the back roads, inlets and private beaches on the whole island. Our first stop was on a dead-end dirt road to look for koalas. Then it was... More

We visited in winter and although sunny days would have been nice this is a great location. Probably the best cliff walks I have ever experienced and so good to get up and close to Kangaroos, wallabies , possums and Koala. The beaches look fantastic so its on my return plans for a summer visit.

The Island was fantastic, if we visit again we would love to stay longer. There is so much to see and do. Dale was friendly and informative. She had... More

What a fantastic Island, sun, sea, sand, loads of wide life, plenty to do or not. Depending on what you fancy. Great selection of good food and drink. However if you want to get off the beaten track your insurance may not cover it and that's where some of the best places are! Lots of well laid out walks which... More

Wow ..... We took a two day tour which was just fabulous. Our guide Kate was superb and made sure the kids got their fill of animals. The food was equally fabulous. Highly recommend. Exceeded our expectations. Thank you.

Wow it was like going back in time. Initially the roads are tarmac but very soon revert to dirt. This adds to the charm. What a wonderful experience.

Overall very good experience, a bit expensive for what it is though.. You are better to see and do everything on that place on your own in your own time and pace so you can see what you want to see..
