Wendy Bithell

Wendy has been an eco-tour guide in the Byron Bay area for the past 13 years. Her business offers walks, wildlife tours, hinterland, and cultural tours. She shares her knowledge of the natural and human history of the area with a unique blend of humor and passion for the environment. She is the only land-based guide in this region with Advanced Ecotourism certification and she has won gold for eco-tourism in last year’s regional tourism awards. Wendy knows where to go to get the best wildlife experience, avoid the crowds (or find them if that’s what you are after) and she can tell you where to buy the best sushi in the shire. She loves trivia, comedy, and good food. When she is not guiding, you will find her kayaking, hiking, planting trees, or supporting local live entertainment and community events.

    It was very informative and we were able to have personal interaction with the guide. Would have been better if we could have got better close-up shots of the Koala. Overall a good experience- was great to see the empathy on the part of the guide for creating awareness regarding environmental conservation
