The Wild Sleep-Out Camping Adventure is an ideal soft adventure for those who want to enjoy an authentic Aussie bush experience. Get up close and personal with some of Australia’s iconic animals, such as koalas, kangaroos and dingoes, and even juvenile crocodiles, as well as a chance to spot wild nocturnal creatures in the trees and feeding along the tracks.
Your Wild Sleep-Out Camping Adventure gives you the unique opportunity to actually camp out with free roaming animals. Your tents are animal-proof, as long as you keep the door zipped up the animals will stay outside. But the animals are not in cages. Free roaming through the bush, they might hang around the camp fire while you toast marshmallows and listen to Dreamtime stories, or be ready to greet you when you step out of your sleeping bag in the morning.
When you take part in the night walk and your morning 'behind the scenes' tour, you get to interact hands-on with the friendliest wild animals in Australia. Included in the package is full day entry to Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park, where you will be able to participate in a number of different activities.
