This was an evening walk in a nature area with night vision goggles, it was an amazing experience. Wendy the guide was great, very informative and easy going and fun! We saw great barred frogs, bandicoots, pademelon, fuscipes, nightcap crayfish, Rakali and a tawny frogmouth owl. We finished off with a welcome hot chocolate and tim tams by the waterfall and saw an electric storm in the distance which was pretty awesome to see too. A great trip and big thumbs up.

This was an all day tour, which allowed us to explore towns and villages beyond Byron Bay. Wendy was very informative, easy going, helpful and full of fun! We learned a lot about the history of each place we went to.
We visited Bangalow, Minyon Falls,Crystal Castle, Mullumbimby and Brunswick Junction. We were never hurried along and given plenty of time to check things out or explore shops on our own or with the group. A delicious lunch was also provided at Crystal Castle and we were even given a choice!
Well done Wendy, we thank you for a fantastic day! We were so impressed we booked up for the Hippy Trail Hinderland Tour as well.

We did the short walk in the rainforest and it was amazing! Our guide was very passionate about the flora and fauna and told us a lot of interesting things about it. We learned a lot that day, had a lot of fun and we even saw a real koala in the wild!
The lunch was really good and she asked about preferences for the lunch.
When me and my friends were in Byron Bay we booked this tour at the hostel we were staying in. Our guide picked us up at the hostel and brought us back to where we want, the most eastern point of australia in our case.
We had a really great day! The guide was really sweet and passionate about her job and we appreciate the nature even more.
Thank you so much for the amazing day!

Wendy was great and highly informative about the area and wildlife. Unfortunately we went on a night very close to the full moon so we didn't see as much as I had imagined. The route for the walk was more pedestrian than I had thought but considering the equipment being used it was probably a good thing. Using the night vision googles was a great way to see the nocturnal animals. The waterfall at the end with hit chocolate and timtams was a fabulous way to finish .

Thank you for your kind review. The moonlight can be a problem at times, the wildlife does tend to hide more, so they don't get eaten by predators. But I'm glad you enjoyed your walk, the waterfall and tim tams.

We had a truly wonderful experience with Wendy on our night vision tour. We were the only two that had booked that evening and so had a private tour at no extra cost.

Wendy is so passionate about nature and Eco tourism it really was a delight to meet her and venture into the national park after dark.

The night vision tour is so unique and novel we were happy just to experience having night vision but Wendy was able to find frogs, bats, crayfish and possums for us to see and even on the drive to the national park we saw snakes, a tawny frogmouth and a bandicoot.

These tour are for true nature lovers and not for those who expect to be taken to a zoo. What you see depends entirely on mother nature but you can be assured that Wendy with her hawk eyes will find some amazing creatures for you to see.

Even when the rain arrived we were given rain coats so we could go and look at the waterfalls by night whilst Wendy brewed us a lovely cup of hot chocolate.

Thank you so much for a fantastic tour, we wish you every success for the future!!
