An Australian wildlife tour will open your eyes to a whole new world of nature. From glowing red cliffs, to sugar sand beaches, the outback, to the coral reefs, Australia has it all. And with wildlife so varied and unique — think kangaroos, potoroos, and cockatoos — it’s no wonder Australia beckons nature enthusiasts from around the world.
We are pleased to offer Australian birding tours and Australian nature tours to the heart of wild Australia. If one of our Australia tours or other Australasian nature tours catches your eye, contact one of our travel planners today.
Guided Group Tours
Group travel is rewarding and fun! With more eyes you see more species. Travel Planners of Naturalist Journeys and Caligo Ventures have been creating memorable journeys for 40+ years. We offer you small-group birding and nature tours, limited to just 8-10 persons led by expert guides. Learn and explore with like-minded people, enjoy local food and culture, and immerse yourself in birding and nature.

We value conservation – it is at the heart of our work. All Naturalist Journeys’ tours support local conservation projects. Browse the links below to learn more about positive local work to save and conserve the wildlife and landscapes we visit.
Western Australia Forest Alliance
Over 70% of Australia’s landscape is privately held, and Karri forest logging poses a threat to local wildlife species. To counter that threat the Western Australia Forest Alliance, a coalition of community organizations, is dedicated to the protection of Western Australia’s forests and woodlands.
Birds in Danger
Current threats to Australian birds include coastal development, habitat fragmentation, breeding habitat disturbance, fire and burning, inadequate and poorly timed water flow in managed rivers, invasive species, and predicted impacts of climate change. A broad partnership of bird conservation organizations developed an action plan titled Birds in Danger to turn the tide for threatened species.
Bush Heritage Australia
Bush Heritage Australia is one of the country’s oldest conservation organizations, dedicated to preserving Australia’s unique wildlife and wild lands. Through land purchase and conservation partnerships, they currently protect over 6-million hectares of the most ecologically important, threatened, and biodiverse lands in the country.
BirdLife Australia are watchdogs for bird conservation across the nation.
