Sydney Tours
Urban Kangaroos
We get to see a very unique animal in a very unusual situation. You will learn about the kangaroo and what makes it such an interesting animal. On top of that we normally get close (but not too close as these are wild animals) to a community of kangaroos that shares its home with a community of humans.

          You may have heard that there are kangaroos hopping down main street and everyone has a kangaroo in their front yard. This tour takes you to a town where this is not that far from the truth. We often see kangaroos in people's front yards and hopping down the street. We also often see some of Australia's parrots and kookaburras.

          Wonderful Evening!
          We went out just before dark to a national park ~1 hour outside Sydney. Very enjoyable time walking among the wild kangaroos. Great experience to get out of the city.

          Just the Best and most economical kanga safari.
          We had the most amazing sightngs of kangaroos in the wild... mothers and joeys, males fighting for control, as well as many local birds. All with commentary by our owner-guide Bruce. Cannot recommend more highly.

          Kangaroo Bonanza!
          We didn’t know what to expect from this tour. Well, it turned out to be a highlight of our visit to Australia! We literally saw hundreds of kangaroos from as close as 10 meters! Got tons of great pictures and made memories to last a lifetime! Our guide was a pro and was full of fun facts about kangaroos and Australia. Highly recommend!

          The Best!!
          This was the best experience that we had on our trip. The joy of seeing kangaroos in the wild combined with the expertise of our guide who added depth to the experience was truly fantastic. I would not hesitate to do it again, or to take other trips offered by this wildlife tour company.

          A Terrific Experience
          We had an absolutely delightful day with Dave on our Walking with Wombats tour. The hikes selected were a good length for a group of people with various skill levels. Dave was prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. He was careful to meet the dietary needs of his passengers and on the return to Sydney he dropped us off at our individual hotels. I would highly recommend spending the day with Dave and experiencing the wombats and kangaroos.

          Great time.
          We have done a lot of these animal encounters over the years in various places with unique wildlife. This experience was on par with what we have experienced previously. Bruce was knowledgeable, courteous, on time, and provided us the experience we were looking for.

          Once in a lifetime experience!! Kangaroos galore 🥰 Don’t miss out- book now!
          I’m left standing speechless! We weren’t sure what to expect- and it turned into a once in a lifetime experience! From the moment we booked the private tour, Bruce kept in touch with us and provided clear details of our tour! The expectation is that we would go on a kangaroo scouting adventure! And Bruce fulfilled!!! We visited a beautiful rural park and for those who have visited the Smokies, we drove into a beautiful area similar to Cades cove (without all the tourists)! Our first encounter with a kangaroo took my breath away. I sat in the backseat with my window down and couldn’t believe it! There he was just staring at me! As we drove on, I thought, oh no- what if we don’t see anymore… Ha! Wow- did we ever see kangaroos! At one hilly field, we parked the car and started on foot to get a little closer (not too close of course- don’t worry). We saw big muscular male kangaroos & momma kangaroos with Joeys in their pouches! At one point, a Joey got curious and hopped in our direction, making his way closer - and then he hopped back to the group. We had kangaroos on the high hill hopping down our way to the large field and then kangaroos in the field hopping around playing and grazing! We booked the private tour knowing that it was just us and Bruce in his car! Bruce provided educational information about kangaroos and also pointed out beautiful Australian birds throughout the drive (cockatiels, colorful parrots and Kookaburra)! If you’re thinking of way to see kangaroos in Australia- this tour is definitely it! You won’t be disappointed- you’ll be walking away with such a warm feeling in your heart knowing you walked around the Australian parks with kangaroos in their natural habitat. Priceless!!! (Be sure to see the photos/videos I took)

          A must adventure !!!
          We are a group of 6 friends and had such a wonderful day with Bruce. Bruce was so helpfull in planning a great day for our group. We had a wonderful lunch at Icebergs while watching the surfers and then it was on to beautiful scenic outlooks. Of course we ended up the day watching wild kangaroos. What fun we had watching joeys nurse and jump in and out of their mother's pouch. We thought that was going to be the highlight until we saw the male teens practice their boxing moves. Bruce was such a delight and was so good at spotting the wildlife and telling us all about kangaroos. A must adventure for all ages.

          Amazing Day with Kangaroos
          The tour was awesome! It was an enjoyable day from start to finish. The timing of each event was well-paced so we did not feel rushed at any point. The view at the Kaima BlowHole was amazing, as well as the the waterfalls. Kangaroo Valley is well worth the drive and is the place where we saw Echidna, Wombats, Kangaroos, and Wallaby. Our guide was encouraging and patient as we waited for the perfect photo opp with the wildlife. We had four teens on the tour and they were definitely engaged.

          Wild Kangaroos from Sydney CBD
          We (family of 6) did a fantastic tour and saw up to 60 wild kangaroos just a bit outside Sydney. Bruce did a great job in spotting then and the tour took approx 4 hours from our city hotel.

          Great trip. I realised a dream to see kangaroos in the wild. We even saw a joey baby.sticking its head out of a pouch.

        This tour was one of the biggest highlights of our whole trip! Bruce is an amazing tour guide. We saw so many kangaroos in the wild, including a huge male, many females, and a baby in a pouch! We had seen some kangaroos at the wildlife sanctuary but it just didn't compare at all to the experience of seeing them in the wild. We learned so much about these amazing animals from Bruce.
        He's also just an incredibly kind person. There was a major traffic jam on the way back so he took out his own time to take us somewhere to eat so that we could enjoy a nice dinner while the traffic cleared. Couldn't recommend Bruce and this tour enough!
