Travelling in Australia - The Animals That You Could Meet in Australia

Australia is a very large country and has a varying range of climates and habitats, ranging from burning hot deserts to snowy mountain peaks.  This diversity means that Australia has some fascinating and unusual animals that you can encounter while you are travelling.  Australia is home to the majority of the world's marsupial species, which are mammals that give birth to their young at a very early stage and then nurture them in a special pouch.

Species such as koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and wombats have become iconic Aussie animals.  Many of us from other parts of the world have seen pictures of them in TV programmes and books all of our lives and so it is a special thrill to see these animals 'up close and personal' in the wild for the first time.  This fascinating article on the special animals that you can meet when travelling in Australia has great information and pictures of some of your favourite Australian animals - kangaroos, wallabies, quokkas, koalas, wombats, echidna and platypuses!
