This adventure takes to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, Canberra’s own wildlife reserve nestled deep in the Namadgi National Park. Enjoy nature walks where you will see Australian native animals in a beautiful natural backdrop.
Look for platypuses fossicking in ponds. The Eucalypt Forest is home to koalas relaxing in the trees and little wallabies hopping through the undergrowth. You may even see one of Australia’s few Brush Tailed Rock Wallabies.
This tour also includes a visit to NASA’s Deep Space Communications Complex where you can see an authentic piece of the moon which was brought back by none other than Buzz Aldren; the original dish that received the famous “One small step for man” speech by Neil Armstrong; and finally the biggest dish in the Southern Hemisphere.

As Australia’s capital city, Canberra was designed to showcase the cultural heritage and diversity of Australia with a number of uniquely designed attractions. The Canberra Attractions Tour offers the perfect mix of cultural history, symbolism and Australian pride all in modern and vibrant settings.
Choose from a morning or afternoon option or combine the two for a full day tour. The National Gallery of Australia, The National Museum of Australia, The Australian War Memorial and Parliament House are just a few of the places you will see as you journey around this wonderful capital city.
The Budawangs are not for the feint hearted. This three day Camping and Hiking Adventure will take you deep into the Australian wilderness. The walk is challenging but the scenery is definitely worth the effort.
The Budawangs are only one and a half hours from Canberra en route to the South Coast of New South Wales. They are virtually untouched and can only be accessed by foot. The terrain is rough so very few people have the opportunity to see this spectacular landscape.
Extra time is given to allow for the difficulty of the walk. The group will aim to get to the Cooyoyo camping grounds by mid afternoon. The campgrounds are beautifully set near the edge of a 100 metre cliff with stunning views. Spend the afternoon relaxing and preparing for the next day.
Leave the campground the next morning after a hot breakfast and hike into the Monolith Valley. As the name suggests, the valley boasts some of the most dramatic scenery in the Budawangs. Natural formations such as the Shrouded Gods Mountain and Green Room greet you as you enter the Valley.
The two day Blue Waterholes Adventure Tour takes you deep into the Brindabella National Park at the northern tip of Australia’s Alpine Ranges. The trip includes two popular walks along the scenic Clarke Gorge and Nichols Gorge.
The Clarke Gorge walk has a number of river crossings so be prepared to get your feet wet. The narrow gorge and cascades lead you to some beautiful waterfalls. This provides a great photo opportunity and relax before heading back to camp.
The campsite itself is isolated so expect to see kangaroos, wallabies and Brumbies (wild horses) grazing on the flats nearby. Hear howling wild dogs from afar each evening before nightfall.
The Nichols Gorge walk meanders in the opposite direction from Clarke Gorge. Discover caves, a number of sinkholes and interesting prehistorical features such as fossils.
