Wildlife Vacations Australia

Australia is blessed with some of the most intriguing species within the animal kingdom, making it one of the most popular destinations for wildlife vacations. Some 83% of mammals, 89% of reptiles, 24% of fish and insects and 93% of amphibians are found nowhere else and seeing Australian wildlife in the wild is one of the most memorable parts of any vacation to Australia.

From swimming with Whale Sharks off Ningaloo Reef, spotting Tasmanian Devils in the deep forests of Tasmania, seeing Humpback Whales breach off Sydney, spotting clownfish on the Great Barrier Reef, cruising with massive Saltwater Crocodiles in Kakadu National Park, swimming with Australian Sea-lions on the Eyre Peninsula or observing Koalas along the Great Ocean Road, incredible wildlife encounters await amongst Australia’s famous landscapes.
