- Driving and walking
- 1 day
We’ll show you some of the district’s best kept natural secrets all within a stone’s throw of Roma. Uncover our local history and listen to tales as we drive to a working cropping and grazing property which integrates its operation with coal seam gas production. Take a leisurely walk through bushland and lunch alongside a beautiful spring fed waterhole lined with red gums. As we explore the waterhole keep an eye out for platypus, wallabies, turtles and goannas. We traverse brigalow, dry rainforest and cypress/ironbark woodlands you’ll be amazed at the diversity of plants these vegetation types contain. Our ecological professional guides will point out bottle trees, kurrajongs, ferns and bush tucker plants. Enjoy the easy-going pace as we take time to escape from daily pressures and connect with the land.
What to expect: Tour requires a 1.5 hour drive (one way including stops) to private property northeast of Roma. Involves short bush walks up a hill with a view and along creek banks. Tour is weather dependent.
