708 Jesmond Rd, Fig Tree Pocket QLD 4069, Australia
I had one goal for the trip to Australia: hugging a koala. This was a little more difficult than you might think; it's only legal in Queensland province, and there are strict rules about how long the koalas can work per day and how much rest...

Similar to a goat-laden American petting zoo, visitors at Featherdale Park can purchase a cone of feed and coax kangaroos, wallabies, and emus over to eat out of their hands. Featherdale is home to one of the area's largest private collections of...

Kangaroo Valley NSW 2577, Australia
The wombats come out to eat/play/generally-be-cute once the sun sets. This one was so distracted by eating, he didn't mind having his picture taken.

Yallingup WA 6282, Australia
The view at canal rocks made the long roadtrip so worth it! The wind was at its peak and the waves were so thundery, we were worried that the bridge would give way.

Tasmania, Australia
A hike down to Wine Glass Bay in Tasmania's Freycinet National Park is hardly the afternoon stroll that rangers make it out to be. But the effort is more than compensated by the gorgeous views and the wallabies waiting on the sand. Signs tell you...

Monkey Mia Rd, Western Australia 6537, Australia
Camping out in our van in our caravan park, we encountered some surprise visitors: a mama emu and her two babies! They were very curious, sniffing around in all the campers' bags and such.

MacGregor Terrace, Bardon QLD 4065, Australia
I love this cute old bike shop in Bardon, Brisbane.

Shell Beach, Francois Peron National Park WA 6537, Australia
This gorgeous lagoon at Shell Beach in Shark Bay was super shallow, saline, and apparently perfect for kite surfing!

Yardie Creek Rd, Cape Range National Park WA 6707, Australia
It doesn't get much better than snorkeling from the gorgeous white-sand beach of Turquoise Bay through crystal-clear waters to Ningaloo Reef, one of the greatest places on Earth for snorkeling! We saw a sea turtle, a shark, rays, eels, and all...

1 Monkey Mia Rd, Monkey Mia WA 6537, Australia
I've seen dolphins at Sea World and in passing pods while out on the water all over the world, but I've never experienced anything quite like Monkey Mia. Two to three times a day wild dolphins flock up to the beach at Monkey Mia for a snack. The...

Seal Bay Rd, Seal Bay SA 5221, Australia
One of my top must-do things for Australia was to see a kangaroo in the wild. After a short road trip, that was checked off my bucket list and then changed to feeding one. We were lucky enough to arrive at Parndana Animal Park, where there were...

11 Country Rd, Nome QLD 4816, Australia
Just outside of Townsville, Australia, the launching point for an adventure on the gorgeous wildlife preserve of Magnetic Island, lies a special experience: the Billabong Sanctuary. Smaller and more intimate than the Australia Zoo, you can get up...
Save Place
Fitzroy Island QLD 4871, Australia
You have a good chance of seeing a sea turtle while snorkeling or diving on the Great Barrier Reef, but you have a 100% chance of spotting one if you stop by the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Center on Fitzroy Island. At the facility, sick and...
