Aussie Animals

Australia's national parks and zoos are fascinating places to visit. Driving along the roads, we were often greeted by wild kangaroos. In the national parks, we had the opportunity to get up close and personal with kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, wombats and Tasmanian devils. It's a great place for animal lovers like us, we love the land Down-Under!

Koalas are really sleepy animals!

It's a cute wombat!
Hey there Hoppy!

Australia has some of the nicest aquariums.
This Tasmanian Devil kept running round and round the tree, it made us dizzy.
You can find some amazing trees in Australia too, like the Bottle Tree here.

The lizards are so well camouflaged! Can you spot them?
Not sure what these really cute things are called.

I have always wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand - now I have yet another reason to get there!

You'll like it there Holly. It's going to be a long way there for you though. It takes us only hours, that's why it's our fav holiday destination. You won't be disappointed.

i did spot the lizzard.. well , i saw one..didn't look for more..on that one shot.

Hey Soul, well done! there's one lizard in the middle and another at the tip of the branch.

Yah, wombats are soft and cuddly. For kangaroos, I have read that a defensive tactic is catching an attacking dog with the forepaws and disembowelling it with the hind legs.

Oh, you'll love Australia cos fishing is a huge sport there!

I travel several times a year, sometimes with the kids and other times with my friends or alone on business.
