Unplug, relax and reconnect with Nature. Escape to fresh country air, towering forests, refreshing streams and waterfalls, and mountain summits for views as far as the eyes can see.
We are specialists in small group, personalised guided birdwatching and wildlife experiences in the Hinterlands of Noosa and the Sunshine Coast and the 5-day, self-sufficient Cooloola Great Walk, connecting Noosa and Rainbow Beach via the Great Sandy National Park. Dedicated to the preservation of the Wilderness and passionate about Australia, owner and professional guide, Steve Grainger provides interpretive sensory adventures in some of the most beautiful forests and parks that are off the beaten track.
Steve invites you to slow the pace down and absorb the wonders of this region. You will discover wild life, endemic plants & animals, the little beauties in Nature so often overlooked. Notice your senses fine-tuning to the scintillating calls of the Bell Miner , scent of a Eucalypt forest, texture of the earth underfoot or a rough Bunya pine tree, see a shy red-legged pademelon under a rainforest canopy or a water dragon scurrying to a creek.
Discover the Blackall Range, Conondale Range, Noosa Hinterlands and UNESCO Noosa Biosphere Reserve on Australia's Nature Coast, one of Australia's hidden treasures.
