Sicklebill Safaris

Specialising in small group tours around Australia and overseas to New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and the Pacific, Japan and Asia, Africa and the Middle East we can offer a variety of ready made itineraries and departure dates with our expert guides. Alternatively we are happy to work with you on a customised itinerary to suit your interests, time and budget either with our guides or using only local guides in the area you wish to visit. We offer bird and wildlife tours, combination tours e.g. birds and diving and an increasing number of cultural tours. Dedicated photographic tours are a speciality.

We can arrange a variety of itineraries ranging from tours for the hardcore birder to the most general of naturalists and have taken all comers ranging from families with children, through to the super fit to the less mobile or elderly (though not all at once)!

We have a policy of supporting minimum impact sustainable tourism ventures where possible which helps preserve and maintain the unique sites we visit giving local people a regular income and a reason to preserve their natural environment. We offer small group sizes (usually no more than 6) to maximise the experiences in what can often be challenging environments.

While the Plains-wanderer is still our flagship species we have increased our repertoire to include all States of Australia and New Zealand, specialising in difficult skulkers and nocturnal birds. In 1998 we toured New Guinea including Manus and New Britain Islands, and Sulawesi (Indonesia) in 2000.

Inala Nature Tours

Specialising in small group tours around Australia and overseas to New Zealand and Africa, Inala offers both ready-made and personalised itineraries and with our expert guides. Inala has been operating for over 20 years, with itineraries designed by company owner Dr Tonia Cochran her team of expert staff. Tonia herself is a qualified biologist and birder with many years of field experience as a guide and tour leader throughout Australia. She draws on her wide-ranging academic and teaching background, her knowledge of Australian fauna and flora, field experience and a large network of local experts to maximise guest's birding and wildlife experiences.

A selection of tours is available from short visits to Bruny Island (including night excursions) to more comprehensive customised tours around Tasmania and all over Australia. Tours are also led by specialist local guides, some of whom work exclusively for Inala. These guides are chosen for their depth of natural history knowledge; particularly birds, wildlife and flora. They know where to find sought after species, have a passion their vocation and know what it takes to make their tours interesting and enjoyable for guests.

Inala Nature Tours operates from a 1500 acre (600 ha) "Land for Wildlife" sanctuary which is Dr Cochran’s home and the raison d’etre of Inala Nature Tours, the company having been founded with the aim of making the long-term preservation of this private reserve environmentally and economically sustainable. About ninety percent of the Inala is native vegetation, with a diversity of different communities present. This requires a wide variety of different species including all 12 of Tasmania’s endemic birds. Most of the income raised by Inala Nature Tours goes into conservation projects and ongoing management of the reserve, which receives almost no external finding.

GONDWANA CONNECTION Wildlife Tours 

Gondwana connection Wildlife Tours offer fully escorted tours, designed to show both the diversity and wondrous nature of the fauna/flora to be found within selected parts of Western Australia and Papua New Guinea.

Our experience off course is not restricted to these two areas and we would be only too happy to personally lead tours into areas such as the Darwin region of the Northern Territory, Tasmania and the very beautiful Wet Tropics area of North Queensland. This last destination can be included as an add-on tour to our Milne Bay Tours, Papua New Guinea.

The avian fauna tend to be our main area of interest and we make every attempt to locate those sometimes elusive target species. Our set tours have been developed to include the prime birding spots within the areas visited.

In addition to our available tours, that can be tailored to suit the individual group, we can also put together Custom Tours for those who have more specialized interests.

Allow us to show you the wonder and beauty of the natural environment, which are part of the ancient Gondwana Land.

GONDWANA CONNECTION has been developed and is run by husband/wife team, Des and Anita Hume.
