My wife and I booked a Nocturnal Wildlife tour on Jan 16. We were picked up from our Busselton accommodation by owners Ryan and Mick who took us on the 20 minute drive to the sanctuary. Their humour, synergy, passion and knowledge of the bush made the main event of seeing the animals a truly remarkable experience. Well done. John & Paula

Highly recommended. We were really impressed with how many creatures we saw and how close they were. My 9 year old son was fascinated and has continued to talk about it. Mick and Ryan are excellent guides who shared a lot of knowledge but were never boring.

We've done two of the South West Eco Discoveries' tours. Our kids are 10 and 11 years old. Ryan and Mick are professional and great, friendly tour guides. The tours are very informative and interactive. I can highly recommend both tours, Nocturnal and Coastal and Wildlife. Both adults and kids loved the tours. Ryan and Mick grew up in the area and has great knowledge of the history, environment, fauna and flora.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review both our Coastal and Wildlife Eco Tour and our 'Meet the Woylies' nocturnal animal tour and of course giving them a high recommendation. We ensure all of our tours are both informative and interactive as this means that it is fun for both adults and children alike. Love our backyard and love sharing it with like minded visitors such as yourselves. Cheers, Ryan and Mick
