Wait-A-While Environmental Tours. Specialise in afternoon-evening tours that combine rainforest interpretive walks with birdwatching and wildlife viewing in the Wet Tropics World Heritage area of The Waterfalls & Crater lakes District of The Atherton Tableland. These relaxed, low impact tours allow small groups of visitors to visit upland rainforest destinations of high conservation value, with an emphasis on observing and photographing rare local endemic birds and mammals in their natural habitat.

Wait-a-While Environmental Tours offer guests staying at Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge a wonderful mountain wildlife experience tour which departs on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

This tour offers a great chance to see many different animal species with a particular focus on the animals found only in the mountainous rainforests of the Wet Tropics. These include the Lumholtz’s Tree Kangaroo and Lemuroid, Green and Herbert River Ringtail Possums as well as many others.

You will be picked up from Chambers at 5:30pm and taken to look for animals such as the Musky Rat-Kangaroo (the smallest and most primitive kangaroo) and the platypus (an egg-laying mammal found only in Australia).

Dinner is at a nice country restaurant.

You will then be taken through both wet and dry sclerophyll forest to rainforest at a higher altitude, and here, your spotlighting adventure will begin.

You will later have an opportunity to discuss what you have seen and heard, and even find out more information about these fascinating creatures.

You will return to the Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge a little after 11:00pm with a greater appreciation of the rainforest, the life within it and the importance in assisting with its preservation.
