Explore the Australian rainforest at night using night vision technology for an insider’s look at the animals that live there.

Their patented Night Vision Walk is the only one of its kind in the world!

Imagine exploring the Australian rainforest at night, searching for nocturnal wildlife. Instead of wielding a torch you’re incognito, wearing special night vision goggles.

This is military grade technology that lets you see animals as they go about their business.

Because they don’t use bright lights they are less intrusive and that means they can be more connected to what is going on all around.

For many of their clients, seeing the forest in the dark is an enlightening experience.

After your walk enjoy a hot chocolate gazing up at the starry night. Heaven!
