Wildlife

image1 (1)Australia separated from Gondwanaland 160 million years ago. This long period of isolation has created a rich, unique and diverse wildlife. Australia is identified by itsKangaroos, Koalasand Wombats to name a few and South Australia arguably has the most accessible wildlife in Australia. You can swim with wild sea lions and dolphins, walk down Eucalyptus lined lanes and spot Koalas in almost every second tree, and view groups of kangaroos grazing in paddocks. Much of the wildlife is found in its natural habitat, devoid of fences and cages.

Although every region of South Australia has an abundance of native wildlife, there are specific areas, which are noted for their ease of accessibility. These areas remain highly protected to sustain the environment, the wildlife and the tourism industry. Below you will find a list of various wildlife species and where to find them. This is only a brief list of what can be found. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are looking for another species.
