Australia’s Wild Side

Bombora Tours

Sydney & Surrounds

Are you ready to discover the incredible creatures that call Australia home?

Hold on tight as we journey through the land of venomous snakes, like the sneaky Inland Taipans and the majestic King Browns! And did you know that the platypus, yes, the cute platypus, is also venomous? How wild is that?

In our backyard, you’ll find the mesmerising yet formidable funnel-web and redback spiders, their beauty matched only by their cautionary tales. And as we navigate our waterways, beware the lurking giants: saltwater crocodiles in rivers, bull sharks in harbors, and the iconic Great White sharks patrolling the Southern Ocean. Even the seemingly harmless kangaroo can pack a punch at 90 kilograms!

Dive beneath the waves and encounter a world of stinging creatures: the elusive blue-ringed octopus, the tiny yet potent Irukandji jellyfish, and the majestic giant stingrays.

But fear not! While these creatures command respect, we embrace knowledge and caution. Join educator and author Grant Hyde as he guides us through this thrilling journey, where every discovery brings new excitement and learning!

Highlights:

  • Hands on participation – touch shark and crocodile jaws, stingray barbs, kangaroo and crocodile claws
  • Get a close up look at a Pacific man-of-war, a jellyfish, redback and funnel-web spiders, even an octopus and the shell of a cone snail
  • Learn about these animal’s natural history and how their defences came about
  • This experience could one day offer the knowledge to save somebody’s life
