Australia is a paradise for wildlife lovers, home to many creatures you won't find anywhere else, along with breathtaking settings to view them. In fact, legendary naturalist Sir David Attenborough himself said "the most extraordinary place on Earth" can be found in this very land.

Home to the world's oldest rainforest, the largest living thing on the planet (the Great Barrier Reef) and more than 80 per cent of plants, mammals, reptiles and frogs which aren't found anywhere else, Australia is teeming with wildlife and some might say there's no better place on Earth for a wildlife holiday thanks to its one-of-a-kind species and destinations that make Oz a living museum.
A country where you can picnic with kangaroos on the white sand Pebbly Beach, spot extremely shy and mysterious platypuses in the Great Otway National Park and swim with gentle whale sharks off Ningaloo Reef, Australia offers an abundance of experiences for every wildlife fan. Adventure travellers will love getting up close to crocs in the Northern Territory, while those who like to watch the animals from afar shouldn't miss the spectacular Penguin Parade on Phillip Island.
