Wildlife Encounter of an Australian Kind [VIDEO]March 8, 2015 By: Down Under Answers
There is a lot more to Australia’s wildlife than people initially think.
"There really aren't enough adjectives to accurately describe the beauty of Kangaroo Island. In fact, words can almost spoil the moment. Even photos don't do this wildly gorgeous destination justice"
Isaac Bober, Symmetry, Australia
MENTION AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE and most people envisage bounding kangaroos, cuddly koalas or perhaps the dangerous sharks, spiders or crocs that more than often make the news headlines. A quick look at the native wildlife statistics: 378 mammal species, 828 bird species, 4,000 fish species, 300 types of lizards, 140 snakes and two crocodile species—not to mention around 50 types of marine mammal—definitely shows there is a lot more to Australia’s wildlife than people initially think.
Distinctive and diverse, you can include some amazing wildlife experiences when planning a vacation to Australia.
A Zoo without Fences: Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island is Australia’s zoo without fences and is the one-stop shop for native wildlife.
Located 30 minutes (by plan) from Adelaide, the island is home to not only kangaroos, but also koalas, wallabies, penguins, echidnas and birdlife. Stroll on the beach amongst a colony of endangered Australian Seal Lions at Seal Bay and get upclose with the other Aussie animals across the Island.
Shark Tank at Port Lincoln
"Once you understand a shark, it helps you to not be afraid to go in to the water. The fear goes when their awesomeness and power take over"
Rodney Fox, Rodney Rox Shark Expeditions
FOR THOSE LOOKING FOR AN ADRENALIN PUMPING EXPERIENCE, go face-to-face with one of the most feared predators in the world – the Great White Shark. Travel to Port Lincoln on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula coast where you can enter an underwater diving cage alongside one of nature’s most efficient predators and live to tell the tale!
Travel north from Adelaide to the Flinders Ranges and meet brilliantly colored parrots, yellow-footed rock wallabies, kangaroos and emus living around the natural amphitheater. This Outback experience will leave you speechless with the stunning colors reflected from the landscape as the sun rises and sets.
Ninety minutes from Melbourne lies Phillip Island, where wildlife viewing is a daily evening ritual where you can witness little fairy penguins make their pilgrimage along the beach to their sand burrows.
Become involved with the future of wild koalas, kangaroos and birds on a full day tour from Melbourne that takes you out bush to help in creating a koala habitat. You are offered the opportunity to search for koalas and other wildlife, record sightings and koala behavior and hand-pull Boneseed (an invasive weed that threatens the koala habitat) and help remove rubbish from their homes.
Meet the devil – the Tasmania Devil on Australia’s Island State of Tasmania. This small marsupial has sharp powerful claws and is capable of consuming one quarter of its own body weight in one feeding session. Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary outside of Hobart is renowned for their wildlife rescue and Tassie Devil conservation efforts. Join them for a chance to hook a Tassie devil onto its snack and start a game of tug of war or perhaps take a night tour to see the nocturnal critters including golden possums, bettongs and tawny frogmouths.
The elusive platypus has been described as the world’s strangest animal. Their unusual duck-billed, beaver-tailed, otter-footed appearance baffled European naturalists when they first encountered it. An excellent place to meet the platypus is Platypus House at Beauty Point, Tasmania
The wombat is a big favorite of Australians. This large, lumbering marsupial can grow to three feet in length, weigh up to 88 pounds and has more than once been adopted as a pet. Mostly nocturnal, wombats can be readily seen on Maria and Devil Islands, Tasmania during the day.
