During our tours you will often have the opportunity to observe and photograph a variety of flora and fauna. Sandra gives detailed descriptions of their significance to each area.

The fauna are abundant at Poppy’s Pools and some of the animals encountered on the boat ride are particularly interesting. Stopping at the pools for a swim you’ll see a variety of fresh water fish species as well as some small native lizards.

Upon landing you will be amazed at the abundance of vegetation, always a number of species flowering throughout the season creating a colourful wonderland. View our slide show for a more detailed account of these species.

Being surrounded by sea it’s difficult not to see a lot of fish while you are Vanderlin island. Visitors interested in doing a spot of fishing might find themselves pulling in a great catch.
