We start this tour at 11.20 am at the Geelong Harbour with a second pick up at 11.30 at The Wool Museum. We then have a 20 minute drive to our first stop.
The Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre, is a truly delightful, inspiring, and hands-on learning adventure. Apart from checking out some of Australia's favorite animals, the center itself is an opportunity to look at the amazing array of artwork and artefacts that are on display. Many are for sale. You can even have a bite to eat and try some genuine Aussie 'tucker'. We are here for approximately an hour.
From there we have a 20-minute drive to The Jirrahlinga Wildlife Sanctuary. Jirrahlinga means 'Seek-a-home for a Kangaroo'. Originally starting life as a place where injured animals found refuge, it has now grown to become one of the most important centers for getting close to, and learning about all Australian Wildlife. Make sure you have your cameras ready because you will want them handy. Native animals, reptiles, birds of every description. In fact, when you travel with Geelong Tours, we guarantee that you will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Australia's most loved animals.
