Get up and close with Kangaroos at Yarra Valley

Enjoy breathtaking scenery from Mount Lofty, a beautiful state park perched between the city of Melbourne and the Yarra Valley winery region that is off the main tourist grid. The main attraction here is a mob of kangaroos munching and relaxing on the grassy landscape. Learn about this fascinating iconic Australian animal - its habitat, unique behaviours and place in Australian culture. We will come down off the mountain and take a walk together along the Yarra River which meanders away from us towards the city and Port Phillip Bay. Along the way, we will do our best to spot some more our native animals and birds. Your interaction and questions are welcomed as we enjoy the landscape together.

I lead bike, walking, small group, mini-bus, coach and virtual tours around Melbourne and regional Victoria. I'm a fully accredited guide with the Professional Tour Guide Association of Australia. Cycling and bushwalking are two of my favourite activities. It would be a great privilege and a pleasure to host you and to show you my beautiful back yard!
