The Pathways to Wave Rock is an amazing place to explore, it is incredibly vast and unique.

It is easy to underestimate just how much there is to do and just how expansive the area truly is, so it is a great idea to join a tour and be led by a guide, they are a wealth of information and help keep you on the right track.

Great Southern Outback Tours & Accommodation

The wonderful stories of the Great Southern region are the foundations of Western Australia’s colonial heritage and our inspiration for Great Southern Outback Tours & Accommodation.

We are a privately owned, bespoke outback touring company, located in the beautiful Kalgan River valley, near the port city of Albany.  We offer small group, off-the-beaten-track 4WD adventures, discovering the glorious rural landscapes of WA’s south east, from the rugged coastal cliffs of the Southern Ocean to the pioneering Goldfields and all points in-between. We like to think that we do things a little differently.  It’s extraordinary country out there in WA’s outback with wide open spaces and clear nights offering an outstanding view of the stars. We’ve created tours that combine a little of everything from meeting local farmers to seeing its amazing wildlife and contemplating both colonial and Aboriginal history and culture.

None of the well-trod tourist trail for us!  Our tours go off-road and into the heart of rural communities as that’s where the REAL stories are found.

Night Time Tours

Wadderin Wildlife Sanctuary Wadderin Wildlife Sanctuary is 430 ha in size, enclosed by 9km of fox and cat proof fencing, and home to reintroduced fauna close to extinction in the WA Wheatbelt. Animals including the Red-tailed Phascogale, Brush-tailed Bettong (Woylie), Banded Hare-wallaby, Brushtail Possum and Southern Brown Bandicoot (Quenda) now thrive within the safe haven.

The sanctuary is run by a local volunteer community group that undertakes ongoing maintenance and improvement to the sanctuary and runs night tours within the sanctuary.
Our tours are taken on an open electric bus at night so you can hear, see and experience the bush and the fauna that live there first-hand. The entire tour takes about one hour, so you will need to allow one and a half hours.

Tours are held on every Saturday night of the year, with other nights for group bookings by special arrangement. A guide will meet you at the Narembeen Roadhouse and will leave at 6.45pm. You will follow their vehicle to the sanctuary, and there, board the electric bus.  Tours are held on every Saturday night of the year, with other nights for group bookings by special arrangement.
