You've gotta be in it, to win it...
Over 80% of Australia's mammals are nocturnal, so if you want to see them you need to get out and about after dark - and we're here to help.
The Gorge is home to 5 of the 6 species of marsupial glider in Australia. Michelle and Simon's trained eyes and ears will give you a fantastic chance of seeing them. And with a bit of stealth, patience, and luck you might see one do its thing and glide from tree to tree.
All the gear...
A few pieces of equipment help us find the animals, and there's one piece of equipment that will help you see them up close - binoculars! If you have a pair, make sure you pack them. If not, we will supply them.

Exclusive to Australian Nature Guides.
Join a local wildlife expert to encounter wildlife you might not otherwise see, including marsupial gliders, echidna, platypus, owls, bats, and frogs.
Using sight, sounds and smells, we'll hunt through the forest along easy, mostly flat trails to see what animal surprises the evening delivers.
It's a great way to see a side to Carnarvon Gorge that most visitors do not get to experience.
Note 1: All tours require a minimum of two participants to run. Should you be a solo traveller, and wish to book a single ticket, please be aware that the tour will be cancelled if minimum numbers are not met. In the event of such a cancellation, Australian Nature Guides will offer your choice of a refund or alternate date.
Note 2: It is important to understand that group noise influences the amount of wildlife encountered, as we rely heavily on our hearing to track nocturnal animals.
