On the Wild Side

During our time in Australia we had the opportunity to go to several places to see native birds and animals.  It was so interesting and so much fun!

The first place we went was Hartley's Crocodile Adventures.











We also went to the Featherdale Wildlife Center near Sydney.  There were so many animals to see that we could have spent most of the day there.  If we're ever back in the area, I would definitely like to spend more time there.

Here's part of what we saw.


Wallabies



Blue-winged Kookaburra
Wombat

Golden Pheasant

Southern Cassowary

Koala




Tasmanian Devil

Little Penguins
Cockatoo

Black-necked Stork

Bush-tailed Rock Wallaby

Brolga

Brahminy Kite
Both Australia and New Zealand are amazing, and I would like to return someday, hopefully in the not too distant future.
