The Estate and its surroundings are teeming with wonderful wildlife. There are over 250 different native species in Australia, and the Mid North Coast is home to a good many of them, especially out here away from the city lights and noise. Hermes Estate offers Australian Fauna (animal) tours, giving you the opportunity to potentially sight a native animal in the flesh.
There’s nothing more exciting, even to locals, to see a native animal in person. We also have many introduced species which live harmoniously in the area. Some animals you can expect to see in the area include many different species of birds, Koalas, Wallabies, Kangaroos, Bandicoots, Platypus, Possums, Kookaburras, Flying Fox, Hares, Rabbits, Ducks, Bush Turkeys and more. Several of these can be seen frequently on the Estate.
