This is a don't miss if you are an animal lover. We drove and walked through the forest, looking for local nocturnal animals and were note disappointed. Saw lots of wombats, roos and a few wallabies, plus a bonus wombat baby and 2 owls. Great information from our tour leader. We drank from a mineral spring deep in the night time forest as well. A trip high light overall!

We had such a good night with Scott. We saw about 9 wombats, plus wallabies, kangaroos, ring tailed possums (a rare possum that I can't remember the name of) and an amazing tawny frogmouth! We learnt some fascinating local history as well. Scott had an amazing eye and knowledge for the natural surroundings. All in all a really fun night out and we were lucky enough to see lots of wildlife. Highly recommended a trip with Scott!

Four of us spent a few hours with Scott. We saw more than we expected (wombats, possums, kangaroos, owls etc), we learned loads about the history of the animals and environment and we taught many interesting facts about each individual animal. Scott is extremely knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and is able to teach whilst keeping us laughing simultaneously. The four of us would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys wildlife, history and generally having fun!

A private tour, full of fun, surprise and laugh...Scott is a humor person, make us have a wonderful night. He took us to look for different lovely animal, like possum, kangaroo, rabbit, owl, especially WOMBAT. He must have a GPS which is for him to spot wombat because we met lots of wombats, they are so adorable. We also learn lots of knowledge of wombat as well as other animals. This is the best tour we ever joined. Strongly recommended tour for anyone. Absolutely worth it! 最好的旅行,最棒的經歷,遇到了好多好多袋熊 私人團,充滿樂趣,驚喜和歡笑......Scott是一個幽默的人,讓我們度過一個美好的夜晚。 他帶我們去尋找不同的可愛小動物,如負鼠,袋鼠,兔子,貓頭鷹,特別是袋熊。 他絕對有一個gps可以讓他發現袋熊,因為我們遇到了很多袋熊,它們太可愛了。 我們還了解了很多關於袋熊和其他動物的知識。 這是我們參加過最好旅遊團。 強烈推薦給任何人。 絕對值得!

Scott met us right away from the cruise ship and off we went. From the moment we left Scott told stories and kept us informed of the local highlights. We saw so much of Melbourne in one day, that I truly got a good feel for the city. It was PERFECT for only one day in Melbourne before the cruise left for Sydney. Highlights included lunch by a river and a local joint that had killer coffee and pastries, city tour and zipping to the top of Melbourne's highest building (plus homemade cookies). Forget the excursions off the ship, go small group with Scott! It was one of our best days out of our entire 14 days in NZ and AU.
