SafetyNet23 Australian Wildlife Experience
- Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)
Our tour starts in Canberra before a half-hour to 40-minute journey through Canberra’s bushland and rural surrounds. We quickly stop at the NASA Deep Space Tracking Station at Tidbinbilla. Here you’ll learn about the significant role played by our telescopes in the Apollo missions, the first moon landing, and current-day deep space tracking. We’ll then travel the short distance to the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, where some of Australia’s most iconic native animals live in the wild. The reserve is home to thousands of wild Eastern Grey Kangaroos, and we have opportunities to view and photograph them up close. Next, we will be the watch for elusive Red-neck Wallabies, bandicoots and Platypus. The reserve has dozens of unique native birds, including colourful parrots and bowerbirds.
