Eco Tours that don’t cost the earth.
Enjoy story book villages, towering forests and misty mountains with Melbourne’s newest day tours – Leadbeater Eco Tours. We specialise in small group tours in and around the Yarra Valley & Dandenong Ranges that have a low environmental impact.
We’re named after Victoria’s State Emblem, the endangered Leadbeater’s Possum, because like it: we’re unique, have a light footprint and can only be found in Victoria.
We are truly lucky. Lucky to have soo many great places to visit on our tours. Almost everywhere we go there’s a postcard picture moment. And with guaranteed small groups sizes, you’re sure to be front ‘n’ centre – not at the back of a queue!
You see, our tours put you at the centre of things, we want you to sit back and enjoy yourself. We’ve crafted our tours to minimise that amount of time you spend on a bus while maximising the time you get at the amazing places you’ll visit. And because we have small group sizes it gives us a certain flexibility to tailor your experience more.
Some of those experiences might surprise you, the best moments on tour can often be unexpected. Like finding yourself staring up at a giant tree that’s over 200 years old. Or being lucky enough to glimpse a lyrebird as it darts across a forest trail. Or maybe it’s learning about the great work of the Animal Hospital at Healesville Sanctuary or simply just kicking back and enjoying the view.
