We just got back from 2 weeks on our first trip to Australia. We went with our 9 year old twins and the walkabout was the 2nd day - we were a little jet lagged - it rained! This was the most amazing day, I cannot think of anything I would recommend more highly for a family to do. The kids recorded all the bird sitings - and there were many!! The weather didn't matter, the learning and experience overcame all, it will remain a special part of our Australian experience. Roger is just the best, wonderful with adults and children alike.
Hi and thankyou for taking the time to submit such a wonderful review! We love seeing kids and adults get involved with nature on this trip, and it sounds like you all really connected! Thankyou for helping us record the wildlife sightings too - it is the most important conservation activity we conduct. Through your tour, the Atlas of Australian Birds and the Atlas of Living Australia receive valuable information about the numbers of wild animals and birds, so we can see if they are declining, stable or increasing. If species are in need of protection, this is how they find out. Plus, it's great fun!
All the best and thankyou for joining us!
