Snowy River & Errinundra Explorer Tour
See Easy Ecotours
 

"Jenny, thank you for opening up for me the wonders of an area of Victoria that I hardly knew.  I’ve loved seeing the landscape, forest, animals & birds and drinking in the fresh air and silence."
Deb (Melbourne)

“The comprehensive interpretation of the flora and fauna of this region enhanced our appreciation of this spectacular part of Australia. The diversity of plantlife over a short distance and varying altitudes is amazing and we really enjoy our five days in the company of happy birdos”
Rosie & Ian (S.A.)

“Thanks Jenny for another wonderful experience- the beautiful Snowy River and Errinundra National Parks.  I’ve seen some huge trees before, but at Errinundra, they are just amazing.”
Val (Melbourne)

Nancy (Melbourne)


“Sun, wind, rain, thunder, sheet lightening, good food, good sleeps, good walks, humour and laughs – thanks – what more could a girl want?! 
Belinda (Melbourne)

“The walking was fantastic as was the company.  Because everything is so well organised it is a tremendously relaxing way to spend a week.  I anticipated it would be enjoyable but it far exceeded my expectations.” 
Claire & John (Melbourne)

“Your individual and combined knowledge and dedication to your corner of nature has been awe inspiring and an example to be followed”

Wonders of Wildlife Ecotour, New Year
See Wildlife Reseach
 

“Thank you Jenny for a most wonderful New Year adventure – I especially enjoyed learning so much about our native birds and animals and the time spent at Haunted Stream trapping and scientifically recording the tiny bats held so much interest for me.”
Margaret (Melbourne)

“The best part for me was observing so much about the wildlife, especially the bats. My pre-conceived ideas about them were so wrong.”
Diana (Melbourne)

“Great way to enter 2006, the research stuff was great to take part in.  Impressive, effortless organisation.”

Alpine Discovery Tour

“Jenny, your enthusiasm, energy and sense of adventure has made this trip unforgettable.  Thank you for sharing your knowledge of the creatures great and small, of the history and the people of the High Country.  What a pleasure it was discovering wildflowers and plants and tasting the berries off a wild pepper bush. 
Ann (Canada)

“Thank you Jenny for a grand trip.  Wonderful stories of the local history and the appreciation you gave me of the wonders of nature.  The High Plains a sheer delight and a highlight of my week.”
Enid (Vic)

“The highlight for me were the Alps with spectacular scenery and the profusion and variety of the wildflowers.  You have passed on such much information and told fascinating stories of life in the High Country from early settlement to the present day.  It has been specially interesting to learn of the impact of the fires on people and the environment and come away knowing that both are resilient.” 
Alison (Melbourne)

"My fourth Gippsland High Country Tours trip. No disappointment here - wobbly knees and deepened laughter lines. Another 5 days of good-for-the-spirit Alpine walking"
Shirley (S.A.)

"How can you describe a walk that leaves us knee-less on our first day, breathless (from climbing uphill) on the second day, direction-less (from scrub bashing) on the third day and care-less on the last day? Fabulous because of the company, the laughs and the gorgeous autumn weather."
Diana (S.A.)

"Another life ambition achieved"
Janie (Melbourne)

"The rock climb to the breathtaking view from the Sentinel was the highlight of the trip for me"

To me the trip has been a great introduction to a new form of holidays"
