There is lots of driving on this tour, but you learn a lot as you go. Wendy was an awesome tour guide and was willing to go out of her way to make sure we saw lots of wildlife. Unfortunately the day we went, the pademelons didn't want to come out and play, but we saw lots of koalas, wallabies, kangaroos, and flying fox. Wendy is a wealth of knowledge and it is obvious she is very passionate about the wildlife in Australia and also about sharing her love for animals with tourists. The picnic lunch was also great, and I would highly recommend this to anyone hoping to see Australian animals out in the wild - it is a bit more authentic than viewing them from behind a cage in a zoo or sanctuary!

Wendy is not your usual tour guide. She might not tell you but she is highly qualified for Eco Tourism and takes groups of 2-6 in her sturdy van. We chose the 6 hour Beyond Byron Tour as it seemed to offer a variety of experiences. Wendy picked us up at our accommodation and on the way to Bangalow pointed out places of interest and showed a vast knowledge of the flora, fauna and geological features of the area. Oh yes, and of the history too. We then visited the beautiful scenery at Minyon Falls before arriving for lunch (included along with entrance fees) at Crystal castle. I thought this was a place you "had to visit" and didn't think I would enjoy it. You must go there! It is extraordinary. We made our way through Mullumbimby to Brunswick Heads, with more dramatic and soothing scenery. Don't tell any one, but we were dropped home long after the advertised time. Wendy seemed to truly enjoy sharing her favourite places with us and she is a multi talented lady. I have travelled to many places and taken many tours, but this was by far the most enjoyable. Wendy offers other tours including a unique Night Vision Walk and you need contact her to find out which tours are running whilst you are in the Byron Bay area. The tour was superb value, not strenuous and we came back feeling refreshed.

A great day out with an excellent guide, thanks Wendy! We went on the Hippy Trail Hinterland Tour. It was fun, informative, great scenery and never a dull moment. The small group really made the day feel special.

What an awesome day! 7 hours and Wendy picked us up at our place!
She went above and beyond for us and showed us everything we were hoping to see!

We saw Kangaroos, Koalas, Paddimelons, Wallabies, flying foxes, and many birds. She even prepared a lovely lunch for us and let us try some local products too!

This tour is the one to take! We did it in winter but in summer definitely book ahead to assure you don't miss it! Thanks again Wendy!
