We had such a great time on this tour! So much is packed in one day - blowholes, waterfalls, rainforest, coast, highlands - it's incredible how much you get to see and experience. My favourite part, however, was walking with wombats in Kangaroo Valley. This is literally what we did - walked among dozens of peacefully grazing wombats. These adorable marsupials were very nonchalant about presence among them. They were taking their first meal of the day very seriously and mostly just kept chewing grass as we walked by. Being literally surrounded by enthusiastically chewing wombats (and a few kangaroos) is one of the best wildlife experiences I’ve had in Australia. I will definitely be joining this tour again.

This was a great tour. The driver/guide, Steve, lives locally and had all the local knowledge to make it memorable. He took us to places that were not on the agenda and told us interesting local stories. Much thanks to Andersons Tours and particularly Steve for a great time John Weir.

We were unable to visit the Jenolan caves due to riad damage. Antoine still provided an amazing comprehensive and interesting tour.
