A highlight !!! It is expensive yes, but you are right in the middle of it and our guide Nikki is just super friendly and very experienced. You can tell that she loves her island and she had an eye for snakes, koalas, goanna monitor lizards and eagles. We couldn't get out of amazement. A really successful day. A nicely organized small group lunch with wine, marinated lamb salmon and salads is very well organized. Top!
