Best Wildlife Tours in Australia

Australia is rich in wildlife and marine life and it is also home for amazing landscapes. It is known that more than 80% of the mammals, insects and reptiles are exclusive to this beautiful country. This means you won’t find this abundance of variety anywhere else in the world. What's more, are the copiousness of opportunities to witness animals in open and witness them in their natural habitat, you can out in the wild with the help of organised trips and live the raw wildlife experience in a huge zoo and well-maintained wildlife parks.


So, with this abundance, why not take a wildlife tour to Australia and explore the rich marine and wildlife. Like there are these critters, for example - kangaroos, wombats and possums which are extensively dispersed around the continent and are comparatively easy to spot. Some are a bit shy and don't come out in open like - the creatures that are rare, shy, endangered, migratory, and endemic to confined areas, and has a combination of these traits, are famously indefinable. These animals are dingoes, platypuses, Tassie Devils and whale sharks.
Other than this the richness of wildlife can be seen in the species that no one would ever expect to find in Australia, and these are buffalo, camels and foxes. Friendly animals, like quokkas, dolphins, and wallabies are also one of these kinds. Hey, wait, there are some famous unfriendly ones also - like world’s biggest crocodiles and the most poisonous snakes; and, lastly, a bunch of creatures that are rare to spot and has achieved legend status. Just for information in case you in Australia for your much-awaited wildlife tour and you snap a photographic evidence of the mythical bunyip, (supposedly) extinct Tasmanian Tiger, fearsome drop-bear, or fabled Gippsland panther, then please preserve it and send it to the wildlife associations as it can be a treasure.
