We were picked up from the hotel in the morning by Shavojn, our guide, and take a minibus to Morialta Conservation Park. Fortunately for us, we were the only guests (but there are probably only small groups of max. 8 people). Due to the extremely hot temperatures, the 2nd part of our excursion, the BBQ, was unfortunately canceled. We have therefore been reimbursed part of the costs. But we also had such a wonderful experience. Before the hike we each got a bottle of water. It was a great hike to beautiful viewpoints. We saw koalas, kangaroos and various birds including a Laughing Kookaburra. Shavojn was a very competent, considerate and nice guide who made us aware of a lot and explained a lot. You can see her love of nature. We would highly recommend this excursion.
