A favorite destination of backpackers and frugal travelers, Australia never fails to allure its onlookers with its red deserts, snow-clad mountains, rainforests, glistening white beaches and more. But what beats all other experiences in this remote country is its wildlife. Watching it in its natural habitat is probably one of the best things that you can do here because nowhere else can you enjoy it so much.
Things to do on an Australian wildlife trip
So, if you are planning for your next wildlife tour in the country, let us help you with some tips that can prove useful for you.
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Queensland:
Head to Currumbin Sanctuary in Queensland to hug the cuddly Koalas in Australia in an exclusive 20-minute session. You won’t get this opportunity in most of the other Australian states. There are nearly 54 koalas here. You can also see a hospital on the premises where sick or hurt koala bears are treated.
Moreton Island, Brisbane:
If you want to spend some fun time with the bottlenose dolphins in this beautiful nation, visit Moreton Island. Touted to be one of the biggest sand islands in the world, it is just 40 kilometers away from Brisbane. You can reach here from Tangalooma Island Resort hassle-free as it serves as the gateway to this destination. And once you get there, be ready to be mesmerized by these water beauties which can come to you to get a fish from your hand.
National Zoo and Aquarium, Canberra:
Kangaroos make a common sight in Australia. You can see them in their natural surroundings in many places, such as New South Wales South Coast, and Murramarang National Park. However, you can do something different and discreet here also. Go to National Zoo and Aquarium in Canberra where you will find a tree kangaroo. You can touch this animal’s little rough and oily fur, and also click a picture with it.
