We went on the Cooper Creek Wilderness Combination Day & Night Package, because we're keen amateur naturalists and we wanted to meet people who really knew and loved the land rather than a "touristy" thing. Also, we knew this was a once-in-a-lifetime visit (we're from the UK) so a full day and evening exploration sounded good. We weren't disappointed, because the guides, Prue and Neill Hewett, were real experts and the day was divided into a whole range of different activities, seeing and learning about so many wonderful animals, birds, insects and plants. Some of the highlights were an unexpected encounter with a huge wild Southern Cassowary; walking under a majestic Fan Palm Gallery; a boat trip on which we saw two large saltwater crocs, and a brilliant torchlight night walk, when we all turned off our torches and watched an astonishing firefly display. The organisers were liaising with local restaurants and we had lunch and supper in two really nice different venues, too (included in the price of the Package).
