When I was in Melbourne, one of the highlights was taking a Savannah Walkabout Tour with Echidna Walkabout. One of the fun experiences of coming to
Australia is meeting the Australians, who have a passion for their country and are willing to share that passion with you. Since 1993, Echidna Walkabout has been providing high quality nature
experiences for small groups throughout Victoria and south east Australia. Their tours are fully guided and catered by the owners of the company, Janine Duffy and Roger Smith, or by Belinda Pearce, one of
their trusted guides. When you tour with Echidna you will discover the real Australia, and they will educate you about the animals in the bush, with whom they have a personal relationship.
Janine's enthusiasm for these animals (she knows them by name) is unequaled and she has many stories to share with you about them. She is also a wonderful wildlife artist and three of my prized
possessions are sketches of the animals done by Janine. Also, Janine and Roger have been conducting Koala Research since 1998. They visit the koala sites three times a week and also regularly stay in
the bush for extended research, so their knowledge of native wildlife is extremely comprehensive. Below are a couple of videos and photos to give you some idea of what your day would be
like with their company. Their company is also a Gold Winner in 2014 of a World Responsible Travel Award for "Best for Wildlife Conservation".
