Mammals, Birds and Sea Life Oh My!
I can’t to begin to express what an amazing, unexpected adventure we had with ACWA! Matt, our wonderful guide, was supreme! When he learned of our love of birds, he brought us to several spots to hear and see Australia’s best from Bell birds and pelicans to the illusive Lyre bird and White Breasted Sea Eagle that he was quick to stop for as we spotted them along our adventures! We also saw kangaroos and a momma wallaby with her joey! Ben Boyd National Park was absolutely stunning!
Our snorkelling at Bittangabee Bay was utterly memorable! We saw three different types of rays and had an amazing encounter with an octopus! Matt showed us numerous fish and urchins! A tour with ACWA is an environmentally conscious tour chalk full of information, gergeous views and adventures. Thanks Matt and Scott!
