Join Sam Nerrie for a magical tour of the gems of the Sapphire Coast in New South Wales, Australia. This gorgeous region with its unique marine life, lakes and beautiful forests will surprise you with its colours and scenery.

Some of the animals encountered on these nature tours include pelicans, flying foxes, white-bellied sea eagles, gang gang cockatoos, rainbow lorrikeets, goannas, Australia's largest stingrays, a bower of the bower bird and many species of birds endemic to Australia. And of course, we always find you some kangas or wallabies hopping around somewhere.  Enquire by filling in the form below.

Visit the beautiful pristine beaches and estuaries around Merimbula, Eden and Panboola Wetlands and discover our unique wildlife. Wildlife is abundant in this region as it is surrounded by national parks and wilderness areas. We have had some fabulous moments on these tours; you won't be disappointed. Last year we had a gang of gang gang cockatoos hanging out at Panboola Wetlands for a while. They disappeared when thousands of flying foxes moved into the 5 star hotel that is Panboola Wetlands. With blossoms and water nearby the flying foxes stayed for the whole summer and into autumn, only leaving when the temperature dropped in winter.

Sam will work with you to create a private bespoke nature tour that suits the interests of you or your group.

Morning tea is included in the 6 hour nature tours. We can offer you a hot or cold drink, genuine Australian biscuits and fruit as well as a taste of our world class oysters.
