Wildlife Tours of Australia
Australia has some of the most diverse flora and fauna in the whole world. And there are some plants and animals that are so unique to Australia that you cannot see them anywhere else on the planet.
Many Australians live in the big towns and cities so do not often get the chance to get to the great outdoors and experience these amazing creatures and fantastic plants.
If you are thinking of arranging a group tour to visit some of the great animal sanctuaries and natural habitats where these exotic creatures live, then CoachHire is the perfect way to explore them.
Here are five locations that wildlife lovers will adore and are well worth a visit to experience nature at its very finest.
If you really want to experience just how diverse Australian wildlife can be then you have to visit Kangaroo Island. You would expect by the name that the island is totally inhabited by these famous Aussie marsupials.
But you could not be more wrong as other great species live there such as wombats, echidnas, wallabies, sea lions, bandicoots, and koalas. The island is also home to a wonderful selection of plants and flora.
Most of Kangaroo Island is a national park, along with the enchanting Seal Bay Conservation Park.
Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living organism on the planet, and is home to the most diverse world of marine life that you can find anywhere. There are literally millions of different species of fish and plants that live and grow in the reef.
Tours leave Port Douglas and Cairns on a regular basis and take visitors to see this magical world that is a once in a lifetime experience.
If you are a fan of penguins then you must travel to Phillip Island in Victoria. Phillip Island gives a chance to see these adorable marine creatures close up and in their natural habitat.
If you are lucky you can see an actual penguin march with hundreds of the waddling cuties taking part.
The Eyre Peninsula
Down in South Australia the Eyre Peninsula gives the opportunity for tourists to get up and personal with some of the most formidable creatures on the planet, namely sharks.
If you have the bottle then you can actually clamber into a cage and be submerged under the water. This Jaws-like experience is not for the faint-hearted but is an amazing way to see sharks swimming menacingly in their underwater world.
Another great natural phenomena to witness great wildlife has to be Ningaloo Reef. Many whale sharks can be found in the waters that surround the reef, these amazing creatures can measure up to 40 feet in length but they are really gentle giants.
Australia’s great diversity of wildlife lives not only on land but also beneath the water and both need to be explored to really take full advantage of what this amazing country can offer.
