A wildlife tour with a difference! Join our hands-on bandicoot and wildlife experience at Woodlands Historic Park – Melbourne

Put on a ranger’s hat! Located just a short distance from Melbourne city, the Woodlands Historic Park is home to some of Victoria’s most unique and very special wildlife. Red-gum grassy woodlands create a nature reserve protecting the endangered Eastern Barred Bandicoot. This day tour lets you experience life as a ranger, and assist our local conservation heroes with important wildlife monitoring – check and re-set wildlife traps, collect data on captured animals and help release the bandicoots back into the wild.

You’ll enjoy close encounters with one of Victoria’s cutest endangered wildlife species, as well as other iconic Australian wildlife including Kangaroos. This is a great hands-on wildlife experience and an opportunity to experience one of Melbourne’s unique nature parks – and learn all about bandicoots.
