Admit it: Part of your motivation for visiting Australia is to cuddle a koala. We don't blame you. Australia's cutest eucalyptus-leaf-chewing marsupial makes its home at this wildlife sanctuary set in a rain-forest environment that's about a 30-minute drive west of Sydney. Alongside koala photo ops, there's the chance to encounter more indigenous critters like dingoes and wombats, along with feeding that other popular emblem of Australiana, kangaroos. Don't overlook the daily stockman show, complete with sheep shearing and boomerang throwing.
