We went on wet windy day so not best day... went expecting to mingle with huge mobs of kangaroos but saw very few.... rock formations great but don't go expecting an island full of wildlife as you will be dissappointed

This is a great tour of a great place. It lets you be "up close and personal" with koalas, roos, wallabies, etc. The guides are AWESOME--they are from KI and know everything! Tea and lunch were served along the way, and both were delicious!
