Top Tips - Australian Wildlife

Australia is a great destination for nature and wildlife enthusiasts. The natural beauty down under ranges from tropical rainforest and hidden lagoons to red-stone deserts as far as the eye can see. The wildlife is just as unique and diverse. Here's our top 3 Australian animals, not to be missed:

  1. Kangaroo - Australians have a special place in their heart for these marsupials; the kangaroo is Australia's national symbol and widely used on coins, in logos, and as mascots. There are over 40 million kangaroos down under, and different subspecies of kangaroos can be found all over the continent.
  2. Koala - Koalas' role in nature is very similar to the sloths of South America. They live almost entirely of eucalyptus leaves and have a very slow metabolism, which causes them to sleep most of the day. Koalas are mostly found in the coastal regions of eastern and southern Australia, but they also live in some more inland areas consisting of woodland.
  3. Platypus - This is one of the weirdest looking animals you'll find in Australia; platypus have the feet of an otter, a tail of a beaver and the beak of a duck. Platypus live in the eastern part of Australia, including Tasmania, and can be viewed in several wildlife sanctuaries in the Gold Coast, around Brisbane and in Sydney.
