Colourful Scarlet Macaw Parrots in the Gold Coast, Queensland.


90% of Australia's indigenous species occur nowhere else in the world. The duck-billed platypus and echidna are the world’s only egg-laying mammals.

While Kangaroos & Emus are quite visable in bushland areas, Australia's native animals are often difficult to spot in the wild. Many are also nocturnal & require night-spotting with a torch. However, you can always visit them in our world class zoos and wildlife parks.

Australia is also home to some of the world’s most dangerous critters such as the redback spider, the box jellyfish, taipan snake, blue-ringed octopus & stonefish.
