I have booked my family on the Wollemi Twilight Wildlife Walk.
Can we use our own spotlights and torches?

Absolutely. But we do ask that you carefully follow the instructions given to you by our guide when spotlighting for wildlife. Just like humans, native animals can get a little upset and scared if you keep a bright light on them for too long. Don’t forget, as part of the tour guests will have the opportunity to use our spotlights that have been specially designed for spotting nocturnal wildlife.

I have special dietary requirements. How do I let you know?

What is the youngest age that you can take on a tour?

The minimum age on our Wollemi Twilight Wildlife Walk is 6 years, whilst the minimum age on our Glow Worm Tunnel Hike, Birdwatching Tour and Wonders of Wollemi & Gardens of Stone is 10 years. All children under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by an adult at all times whilst on tour or hike.

What will I need to bring with me on tour?

Apart from a sense of adventure, it’s a good idea to bring with you a small day pack. This way you can place your drink, food (on the longer walks), additional clothing and any personal belongings securely into your bag. Don’t forget to bring along a camera to record your adventures so that you can share your memories with family and friends.

What will I need to wear on a tour?

During the cooler months (from April through to August) it is recommended that you wear plenty of layers so that you are protected from the cold and that you are able to remove the extra layers if you become too warm. During the warmer months (from September to March), it is recommended that you wear a hat and light clothing. Sturdy enclosed shoes or hiking boots are a must as the tours and hikes involve different levels of walking with varying terrain. It is also a good idea to have a wet weather jacket on hand if unfavourable weather is forecasted.
