The Wildiaries Experience
Yarra Ranges Wildlife & Spotlighting (5 hrs, from 2h before dusk)
From $120.00 * AUD
Less than an hour from Melbourne is one of the city's best wildlife experiences.
Head to a secret location to look for wild Platypus (they are very commonly seen) and, if you're lucky, stumble across the resplendent resident Lyrebirds. Stroll through Badger Weir in the dead of night to search for one of Melbourne's most endearing and secretive native animals - the Greater Glider.
Although no wildlife sightings can ever be guaranteed, during this trip you have a very good chance of seeing Platypus, Wombat, Swamp Wallaby, Superb Lyrebird (seasonal) and Greater Glider, as well as a suite of rainforest birds. You might see Sugar Glider, Yellow-bellied Glider and Mountain Brushtail Possum during spotlighting and you will may hear Sooty Owl, Powerful Owl and Southern Boobook.
