We first stayed at Inala 14 years ago. This was our second stay in Inala Cottage and it was for 3 nights. It was brilliant. Everything has grown up so well, the bush is recovering over the former hay fields, the cottage garden is more of a paradise for birds, the Jurassic garden was interesting and the bird hide/lookout tower was great for the 40 Spotted Pardalotes. We saw all the endemics except the Swift and Orange-bellied Parrots, within the first day on our rambles around the property. The wallabies were great but our favourites were the several Antichinus feeding around the back garden during the day.
The staff were very helpful especially when we reported an injured Wallaby in the middle of the night and they went out to help if possible.
This also provided a great base to explore other areas of Bruny Island.
This provided a great start to our Tasmanian trip.

Thanks for the great review, Andrew. It was a pleasure having you visit again to see the transition of the re-vegetation since your visit 14 years ago. The growth of our mature White Gums and associated planting has helped boost the Forty-spotted pardalote population. Pleased to hear you had time at the platform. It's a great spot to relax and watch the Forty-spotted pardalotes at eye level.
We also love seeing the antechinus busily scurrying about in the gardens and bush.

Hopefully you will visit again much sooner than in another 14 years :)

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 hour morning walking tour of the Inala property with Cat, who is a very passionate and knowledgeable guide and an excellent communicator. She found many fantastic bird species for us and also described the overall ecology of the area and the ongoing conservation processes occurring at Inala in a very interesting way. Highly recommended.

Everything about it was fantastic. The office team were responsive and attentive during our booking process. Catherine (our guide) is great company and it was a joy to spend long days with her in the wind and rain. Obviously knowledgeable and passionate about the nature, she paced the days to fit our energy levels and interests. Fantastic.

We spent 7 days on a birding tour visiting areas such as the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree River and Atherton Tablelands. Well planned and covered birds, animals, and places we most wanted to see. Visiting the Great Barrier Reef was a highlight. Accomodations were in nature oriented facilities were very good. Chambers Lodge was particularly beautiful. Our guide Ben was knowledgeable and personable and had a great sense of humor even after spending 7 days with us. Great tour for birders and nature lovers. Full itinerary allowed little down time.

Inala put together a great program for me when I visited Tasmania. And they did this at the last minute. The guide - Nick Mooney - was an outstanding guide and companion. I was primarily interested in birding, and his knowledge resulted in my seeing 11 of the 12 Tasmanian endemics as well as dozens of other amazing species. I met him at 7am the first morning and within 15 minutes I was looking at a Gray Goshawk. We were still birding 10 minutes before the ferry departed, and he left me with homework -- birds and locations to stop at on my way back to the Hobart airport. Impressive. Ask for Nick and you won't regret it.

Great to hear you had an enjoyable day with Nick and hope you were successful in completing your homework ;)
