© Wildscapes Safaris

The Trip

This trip is an opportunity to enjoy an exciting evening that is truly out of the ordinary. You will observe platypus and the wildlife of the tropical rainforest at night. Most wildlife in the rainforests here are nocturnal, so a night tour is your best chance of seeing such rare and unique animals as tree kangaroos, bettongs, wallabies, quolls, and possums. © Wildscapes Safaris

Departing in the early afternoon, the trip heads up into the mountain forests above Cairns. The first stop is to see platypus in their native habitat. Next it is time for a BBQ dinner with all the trimmings. Following dinner, the group ventures into the rainforest.

Alberto outfits everyone with battery-powered headlamps and trains them how to spot wildlife. It is really exciting to first spot the bright red glow of an animalís eyes, then realize what it is. The group uses the headlamps to observe and photograph the animals that are encountered. We strongly recommend this trip to anyone interested in seeing and learning about the local wildlife.

The Company

Wildscapes Safaris is the dreamchild of two energetic and imaginative people, Alberto and June Vale. While June handles much of the behind-the-scenes administration, Alberto leads the wildlife tours.

Alberto is not just an expert on local wildlife. He is passionate about them, conducting scientific research on platypus ecology and serving as an active voice for the conservation of other local species. Albertoís combined enthusiasm, passion, and knowledge make him the ideal wildlife guide. We especially like the fact that both of his tours involve small groups of 10 people or less, bringing everyone closer to the action.

It is no surprise that Wildscapes Safaris is conducted with the utmost environmental concern and has earned an advanced ecotourism accreditation for its environmental care. Wildscapes Safaris is a National Accredited Ecotourism Tour Operation certified by the Ecotourism Association of Australia since 1997 and Winner of '1999 Queensland Tourism Awards'.
