What to bring on tour with Araucaria Ecotours

Day tours

  • sun hat (we do usually have spares if you forget)
  • comfortable walking shoes - you won't need mountain boots, but  something with a non-slip sole is best (sneakers are fine)
  • raincoat (again, we have spares)
  • binoculars (we have spares of these also but some have had rough treatment)
  • swimsuit/bathers and a towel if coming to Coochiemudlo in warm weather
  • warm jacket for wildlife day-tour for  early evening (may not be needed in summer)
  • insect spray and sunscreen (again we usually carry these if you forget, and we don't get swarms of troublesome insects)
