Our recent trip nearly circumnavigating Australia (Melbourne to Perth over the top) was our fifth visit to this diverse island nation. Living in New Zealand, it’s only a 3-hour flight from Auckland to Sydney. While I typically share photos of the dramatic landscape, seascapes, and architecture, today’s post is about the Australian animals that we have seen.
This is only a sample of the wildlife we have seen and a tiny portion of the over 450 species of mammals, 300 species of lizards, 110,000 species of insects, and 800 species of birds that call Australia home. Australian Wildlife: Wildlife Explorer offers 200 pages to give a more comprehensive look at Australian animals.
