Wildlife Viewing



On a Vantage adventure in Australia & New Zealand, you’ll get up close and personal with wildlife you can’t find anyplace else. And to ensure your adventure includes unforgettable wildlife experiences, we’ve crafted our Australia & New Zealand adventure to include safari opportunities — like your reef safari on the Great Barrier Reef.



Lion

The underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest reef in the world — it stretches more than 1,600 miles and is larger than the UK, Switzerland, and The Netherlands. You’ll travel to the lesser visited outer part of the reef, so you can discover the 1,500 fish species, more than 200 species of birds, dozens of species of dolphins, porpoises, and whales, and more. You can experience this kaleidoscopic underwater world while snorkeling, scuba diving, or watching from an underwater observation deck.

Get your camera and GoPro ready: Consider waterproofing your phone or camera — the photos you take will be dazzling underwater!

Kangaroos

Kangaroos

Perhaps the most famous wild denizen of the lands Down Under, kangaroos have incredibly powerful legs — so much so that they can leap nearly 30 feet in a single bound. These creatures feast mostly on grass and shrubs, and are also notable for their famous pouches in which their young (known as joeys) spend some formative time with their mothers.

Get your camera and GoPro ready: You’ll get a chance to snap some photos of these famous animals at the Featherdale Wildlife Park. These marsupials are quite photogenic!

Koalas

Koalas

In spite of the “bear” that is often attached to their name, koalas are marsupials just like kangaroos. They eat a lot of eucalyptus leaves — up to two pounds a day — so they are often busy eating while hanging from a tree branch. They don’t do a lot of drinking though, as koalas get most of the water they need from the leaves (it is said their name comes from the Aboriginal word meaning “no drink”).

Get your camera and GoPro ready: You’ll have a chance to get up close and personal with these cuddly creatures during a tour at Featherdale Wildlife Park — think of the cute shots you’ll get!.
