Wildways Tours Wildlife Spotlight Tour

Nature and wildlife

Wildways Tours offers a number of unique guided wildlife tours in Tasmania. We take you into the Tasmanian wilderness to learn about our unique wildlife in their natural habitat. We have the only speciality devil-viewing hides in Tasmania, providing a truly rare experience to see Tasmanian Devils in the wild. The hides are small shelters in the wilderness where guests stay overnight, watching through the one-way glass as Tasmanian Devils, and other nocturnal wildlife species, show up throughout the night to eat, groom and interact with each other.
Offering several tour options, giving guests the chance to experience Tasmania’s wildlife close up and in the wild.
On our spotlight tour, we take you into the exciting world of Tasmania’s nocturnal wildlife as we explore on foot and in our 4WD vehicle, finding a diversity of species along the way.
With a passionate expert wildlife guide teaching you all there is to know about Tasmania’s nocturnal wildlife, you will have an opportunity to see and learn about many of our native wildlife species, including Platypus, Eastern Quolls, Wallabies, Possums, Potoroos, Eastern Barred and Southern Brown Bandicoots, Masked Owls, Wombats, Boobook Owls and more.

If you’re lucky we might come across a Spotted Tail Quoll or a Tasmanian Devil (But, if you want a guarantee of seeing these in the wild, we suggest staying in one of our hides).
Times vary depending on the seasons and location, with tours ranging between 2 to 4 hours in length. Beginning at dusk our spotlight tour gives you the chance to immerse yourself in an exciting nocturnal world as the forests, tracks and trails come alive at night.
