We did the Koala walk during the day and saw 12 adults and 1 Joey. The nocturnal tour in the evening, (90 minutes) we saw lots of Kangaroos, Tanners, Wallabies, Possums, lots of birds, and more Koalas. If not familiar with Australian animals it definitely worth the stop.

My wife and I had a great day with Guy (our guide). He knew exactly where to take us to see a large variety of animals and plants. We could have taken the self guided tour and not seen half of what Guy was able to track down for us. We were lucky enough to watch a Koala come down from a tree and walk in front of us. At $20 apiece this tour was a real bargain. Our best day yet on Kangaroo Island. Thanks Guy!

You want to see wild koalas? Go there! They're not easy to find in a forest if you wander around. Here, you'll get a spotter with you.

The guides seem to be quite young but knowledgeable. This means that this is interesting, but sometimes the guy (and his associates for the night tour) kind of lose their professionalism. Nothing really bad, they just appear to be a bunch of young guys having fun and not always aware of the tourists around.

We enjoyed walking around and looking at koalas. There are plenty to see if you walk slowly. There are kangaroos and wallabies there too, but we didn't see them as we had been to other places that day and it was getting cold! The people who run it are very friendly and give good advice as to where to look for the koalas.

Our tour guide took us along level pathways through the property to see the koalas and kangaroos in their natural habitat. The animals are all free to come and go as they please. Mature adults, koalas and kangaroos, both male and female, some with joeys, were free ranging throughout the sanctuary. The guide's commentary was very informative and educational. She was easily able to spot koalas high in the branches of the eucalypts and to direct our group to the best vantage points to take photos. A word of warning, never stand directly underneath a koala! Australian native animals at their very best.
