Australian Wildlife Encounters 

Our Mission

Australian Wildlife Encounters aims to educate people to live and work around our native fauna. We provide exciting and informative 'Hands on' experiences for people of all ages in order to promote the conservation of Australia's unique wildlife. We extend this by running accredited courses for the workplace that specialise in safe human-wildlife interaction.

Our Team have been dealing with all sorts of wildlife on a professional level for over 10 years. We combine Passion with Expert Knowledge to ensure that - when we come to you - you receive the best information and walk away with a whole new appreciation of Australia's Wildlife!

Australian Wildlife Encounters run fully accredited Wildlife Adventure Tours. These tours are aimed at Naturalists, Wildlife/Landscape Photographers as well as anyone that is interested in really experiencing the absolute best that our beautiful country has to offer.
