The most picturesque time to see the wallabies and kangaroos on the beach at Cape Hillsborough is at Sunrise. Get up close and personal with these iconic Australian marsupials, waking up early is worth it!

Learn and reflect on our role in preserving and protecting Australia's natural beauty with your local guide.

We arrive at the national park at dawn to catch a glimpse of the wallabies and kangaroos that come to the shoreline to feed on mangrove seed pods washed up by the tide. Spend time walking along the shoreline and taking in all the beauty of the sunrise.

Our 23-seater air-conditioned bus allows a comfortable adventure in a small group environment as we take you to explore the Cape Hillsborough National Park, where the rainforest meets the sea.

Private charters on any day are also available upon request (a minimum amount is required).

Call us if your requested day is not available, and we will do our best to accommodate.

*Can also be combined with Finchy's Gorgeous Gorge Tour
