It’s an experience you won’t forget!
The Beautiful Beaches

Our Unique Wildlife
Australia has many amazing birds and animals, and there is a good chance that you’ll see many of them in the wild during your visit. Koalas, kangaroos and wallabies are our most famous, but did you know we have other unique animals too?
Dingoes, Numbats, Quolls, Wombats, Bilby’s and Tasmanian Devils are some of our least known native animals and found throughout Australia.
