The Australian continent is home to many unique fauna
not found anywhere else in the world. Whilst some of our fauna have been
exported to zoos and wildlife reserves in other countries, there is nowhere better to see them, then
here in Australia.
Your travel around Australia also offers the opportunity to
see some of our wildlife in their natural environment, some of our most popular
being koalas, kangaroos and wallabies. Driving through the outback or exploring
some of our national parks, you can often see reptiles, from the blue tongue
lizards and bearded dragons to frill necked lizards up in the Top End. Australia
also has larger reptiles such as the Gould Goanna and Perentie.
Australia also have plenty of wildlife parks, sanctuaries and zoos where you
and your family can get the opportunity to get up close to many wildlife, not
only native Australian wildlife, but others creatures from around the world.
Places such as Werribee Open Range Zoo and Taronga Western Plains Zoo, both
also offer the opportunity of staying overnight.
Most of our capital cities are home to or close to zoos and wildlife parks,
with wildlife sanctuaries, some specialising in particular endangered species
are usually in more remote location, although still accessible from nearby
In addition to the fauna images displayed here, AusEmade has information on
wildlife throughout our website, with some shown on specific destinations
