As traveling becomes more about having amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experiences rather than going from your hotel room to the pool and back again, your travel adventure options are growing endless. One such option is nature and wildlife tours. Most frequent luxury travelers will say that they have an African safari somewhere on their extensive bucket lists, but what about a weeklong walkabout into the Australian bush? Echidna Walkabout offers eco-friendly and sustainable Australian nature and wildlife tours that you’ll want to book right away.


Their week-long Wild Top End tour takes place in August each year, and spots fill up fast. The tour takes place in Australia’s Top End region, located in the Northern Territory’s tropical outback. As you trek through forests and across rivers, you’ll find crocodiles, ancient Aboriginal paintings and an abundant amount of native birdlife.



You can also book a private tour for yourself and a friend or for a small group. The four-day Croajingolong Journey combines full days of wildlife sightings with luxury accommodations. You can hope to see all of the unique wildlife Australia is known for — wallabies, echidnas, platypus, wombats and kangaroos.


If you’re in the area — Melbourne, to be specific — and just have an extra day, you can sign up for their one-day, eight-hour Koala & Kangaroo tour. You’ll help with koala habitat preservation efforts; photograph kangaroo mobs; and see parrots, emus and wallabies, among other native creatures. Tickets are around $160 and include a picnic lunch.
