Wildlife Watching

A wildlife experience like no other!

Wake up to a chorus of birdsong and kangaroos grazing beyond your window. Wander among echidnas and wallabies on your morning walk and follow the unmistakable calls of koalas lazily lounging in the eucalypt canopies above.

Spot goannas sprawled on sun-drenched rocks and explore our property’s lagoons and river systems where Black Swans and their cygnets await. When the sun goes down, meander through Ecopia Retreat’s moonlit bushland paths and spot nocturnal inhabitants including possums and owls.

This is Australia as nature intended; take your time as you take it all in. Wildlife lovers who truly immerse themselves in our sanctuary will be rewarded with unforgettable encounters in the wild. And that’s all without leaving Ecopia.
It is truly an unparalleled wildlife experience!

Wildlife watching is intrinsic to your experience here at Ecopia.

We have a very simple ‘wildlife in the wild’ policy in our sanctuary, where we ask our guests not to disturb any natural behaviours of the local communities, and that includes a no feeding rule! Humans’ food is not part of the natural diet of wildlife, and can really harm them, even food that seems healthy like fruit and vegetables. In a healthy natural environment such as Ecopia, wild animals have sufficient food, and ones that are fed by humans will quickly learn to harass people for food and potentially abandon their natural diet.

If you’re a keen photographer, best to walk quietly through the bush, stop and let wildlife come to you, or even better - use good lens that will allow you to take shots without having to get too close, so not to create unnecessary stress. Feeling threatened in their own environment may have significant ecological consequences. This is particularly important for threatened species, where any disruption to feeding or breeding habits may really impact their chances to survive and thrive.

A wildlife experience like no other!

Please maintain a respectful distance and never feed wildlife. This way you will have the most authentic wildlife watching experience, and you will be supporting them to keep on living their lives in their instinctive natural way.
