Now a free experience, Sunrise with the Wallabies Tour is one of Australia's iconic wildlife experiences, where Eastern Grey Kangaroos and Agile Wallabies come onto the beach to feed on mangrove seed pods. Nowhere else in the wild will you get so close to Kangaroos and Wallabies. Such a wonderful opportunity to capture a magical moment of sunrise on the beach with our national symbol, and reflect on our role in looking after Australia's natural beauty. Set in beautiful Cape Hillsborough, rich in history and culture, this magical experience will leave you transformed.
