Nocturnal wildlife spotting at Carnarvon Gorge

On this Carnarvon Gorge night tour we’ll engage our sight, hearing and sense of smell, and explore the forest floor along easy, mostly flat trails to see which animals emerge upon nightfall.

Marsupial gliders, owls, echidna, platypus and bats are just some of the extraordinary animals commonly encountered on this tour.

Of course, when dealing with wildlife, there are no guarantees! So be very, very quiet, and we’ll do our best to get you into a position to see marsupial gliders do what they do best….GLIDE!

"We went for the gliders and we weren't disappointed. Watched many yellow bellied gliders and four greater gliders. The highlight was seeing three full glides. Magical stuff!"

The Recipe for Success

There are some really simple steps we can all take to maximise our chances of seeing nocturnal wildlife during this Carnarvon Gorge night tour. 

Firstly, we’ll reduce the noise we make to ensure our nocturnal wildlife is comfortable, which will lead to far more natural behaviour, making them way more interesting for us to observe.

Secondly, we’ll only use red spotlights, to ensure their night vision is not compromised, which also happens to work out well for us humans!

Finally, you’re welcome to bring a camera, but please don’t use the flash, as this can impact greatly on their night vision, and may cause gliders to crash!

Seeing these beautiful animals in the wild is a thrilling experience, but ensuring our encounters with native wildlife are ethical is one of our top priorities, so remember to observe, without interfering

The Fine Print

Note 1: All tours require a minimum of two guests 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, Carnarvon Gorge Eco Tours 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. We reserve the right to exclude any guest/s who are unable to remain quiet when directed by their guide. Parents should be particularly mindful of this when booking young children onto this tour.
