What is the best time of year to go on a tour?

We operate between the months of September and May. Here’s a few tips about the weather.
In summer the temperate rainforest acts as a natural air conditioner and can be between 7 and 9 degrees cooler.
January in school holidays are our busiest time, so it’s a good idea to book ahead.
Spring in Oct and Nov is the best time for wildflowers and for birdwatching.
In February and March the weather is mild and it’s the perfect time for adventure tours in the South West section of the Deua, where the pinkwoods grow. They flower once a year in early to mid-march.

Do you operate in winter?
It can get pretty cold in winter so we usually shut up shop during June, July and August. We do run adventure camps during those times, but you’ll need a sleeping bag that goes down to -10 and a minimum of 4 people. If you have a group of keen beans that are ready to brave the cold, contact Paul 0422 178 723.
What happens in wet weather?
In high wind and heavy rain we’ll relocate to one of two holiday parks – Beachcomber Holiday Park at Potato Point near Bodalla, or Big 4 Moruya Heads East’s Dolphin Beach holiday Park. Both parks have friendly staff with shower and bathroom facilities.
What do we do with our rubbish?
As in any National Park, it’s our responsibility to collect all garbage and take it out with us.
Is there are river/waterhole to swim in?
There is a waterhole at the Bakers Flat and Deau River camp grounds where you can swim in the warmer months
Do you have a First Aid Certificate?
All our guides are First Aid qualified.
What ages are appropriate for kids?

If you’re going on the Family Reconnection Camp there is no restriction on age.
For Scones in the Forest day walks we advise parents and carers that it’s suitable for children aged 5 years and upwards. If you’re unsure contact Paul and he’ll advise you what’s best.

How fit do I need to be to do the bushwalks? What level of difficulty are the hikes?

All our walks are rated with the level difficulty: (easy, medium, experienced)
Generally, our day walks are rated easy to medium level, appropriate for kids and beginner level. We can tailor the tour to your preference so talk to Paul 0422 178 723 about the kind of experience you’d like to have.

Can I organise a nature walk for a large group (more than 10)?
Yes! We get lots of bookings from corporate groups, cruise ships and tour operators. Contact Paul 0422 178 723 for group bookings.
I want to come with my family or a group of friends. Do we all need to book together? Or separately?
Families and small groups can you book together. If you have a particular date in mind you can check how many spots are available when you book. Or just give Paul a call and he’ll create a custom tour for you. Have a read through our tour packages to see what you like the sound of.
Are there shower or bathroom facilities?

At the Bakers Flat camp ground and Wyanbene Caves there are dry pit toilets. For remote campsites we’ll have a portable sealed toilet with pop up tent for privacy.
There are no showers facilities on any of the tours.

Is there mobile phone reception?
There is limited mobile phone reception inside the Deua National Park.
Do you have a radio or phone in case of emergencies?
Yes, we have a satellite phone for when we’re outside of mobile phone reception.
Is Nature Engagement Tours glamping?
We provide high quality camping tents that are comfortable and functional. If you’re looking for something a little more luxurious we offer a glamping experience at Deua Tin Huts for $150 per night (adjusted seasonally). We’ll pick up guests from the Huts at 10am once breakfast has finished. You’ll be given a basket breakfast goodies including bacon, eggs and muesli options as well as tea and coffee.
Can I bring my dog?
There are no dogs or pets allowed in National Parks and fines apply. But you can bring a stuffed toy dog to keep us company.
Do I have to help set up?

If you fancy yourself a bit of a tent expert then you’re welcome to pitch in. Otherwise, feel free to sit back and watch Paul or one of your guides do all the work.
