Wildlife Tours in Victoria

With a wide array of exotic flora and fauna, it boasts the best wildlife tours in Victoria. Melbourne Zoo is like no other. It mimics the natural habitats of the animals it hosts. Watch a bushbaby hide among the bushes; platypi playing around in an aquarium and fur seals, reptiles, Gorillas and tigers, roaming around the zoo. Book a tent at the Roar N Snore camp, in case you’re here between September-May. Swing around like Tarzan on a tree-surf down the Mornington Peninsula. Check out Bay of Islands and Tower Hill, home to native koalas, emus and waterbirds. Watch the cutest Penguin Parade, where the world’s littlest penguins line up to march, at Philip Island. Frolic around with a platypus in Healesville Sanctuary. Occasionally, you will find the Purple Swamphen and Mountain Duck in Victoria. The state is also home to the Tiger Snake, a slow-moving reptile.


A diversity of endemic plant species and wildflowers are found at The Otways, apart from the Otway Black Snail and the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo. You will also spot koalas among Eucalyptus tree branches, in the most surprising places. When in Victoria, drive down the winding Great Ocean Rd and marvel at of the limestone delight of the 12 Apostles. Take a stroll through the ornamental Royal Botanic Gardens, with a lake in its centre. During game season, go watch a cricket match at Australia’s largest stadium, Melbourne Cricket Ground. Take a Dumpling Discovery Tour as a part of the Walk Melbourne initiative and taste all varieties of this food. Explore the quirky fantasy retreat of Mira Mira, in Gippsland, with its walls done up in bizarre but cute shapes and structures.
