Specialists in Nature Tours since 1986

Coates Wildlife Tours is family owned and the first company in Western Australia to operate authentic nature-based tours over such a wide area. We have brought together a selection of the finest natural history tours available in Australia and beyond for you to choose from.
In 1986 Kevin Coate formed Coates Wildlife Tours and began our tradition of offering quality, nature-based tours in Australia. During the past 33 years we have introduced a wider range of tours including many international wildlife expeditions.

Why choose Coates for your nature tour? Here are just some of the benefits:
Great destinations: Coates Wildlife Tours continue to offer tours that let you experience nature in small groups. Our relaxed itineraries allow plenty of time and flexibility to pursue individual interests as well as providing an in-depth interpretation of the natural world with minimal impact on the environment.
Great leaders: Our dedicated naturalists have a wealth of knowledge and experience. Their enjoyment and understanding of natural history is reflected in their individual leadership styles. It’s the quality, courtesy and personality of our leaders that make our tours a success and have our customers returning again and again.
Great companions: Find out how much more rewarding the touring experience can be when you travel with a small group of like-minded people, who share your love for the natural world. Group sizes vary with the destination and type of trip being undertaken, but generally range from six to twelve guests. Our customers have commented that many touring companions have become life-long friends!


“We wish to thank you for such a wonderful holding and for your generosity, thoughtfulness and caring way towards everyone on the tour.
What an amazing trip under the guidance of Martin and Ross. So memorable along with new friendships made.
Our warmest wish to you both for producing such a wonderful adventure.”

Travel well – travel Coates. Where to go to get the best value for money is a question we face more and more in these hard economic times. Our holidays and where to spend them are even more vigorously scrutinised and budgeted for. Apart from finance, the single most important factor of a holiday is what value we are going to get for our expenditure.

Having now taken two trips with Coates Wildlife Tours and both having been so successful, yet so different I could do no more than highly recommend them to anyone wishing to see Australia. Travelling with Coates gives maximum return for every dollar spent and leaves impressions of Australia which one will long remember. One golden rule worth remembering is when you are onto a good thing stay with it. When you give them a try I’m sure you will feel the same way about Coates.
