AUSTRALIA’S ICONIC ANIMALS IN SYDNEY CBD

If you are planning a trip to Sydney and you are a visitor from overseas, then you can’t really leave Australia without having seen some of the countries famous animals. If a trip to Taronga Zoo is too long (it will take up most of your day) but you would still like to see (or even pat) some icons, then I suggest you pop into Sydney Wildlife zoo in Darling Harbor. It is home to different species of Kangaroos, Koala’s, a massive crocodile and several different types of reptiles. In this post, I will show you some of these adorable animals and I will give you some basic information on this zoo.

GETTING YOUR CAR WRECKED BY A GIRAFFE AT SAFARI PARK BEEKSE BERGEN

Safari Park Beekse Bergen is a… well a safari park. It is located in the South of the Netherlands only an hour drive from the Belgium border.  It became world famous a few months back when some French tourist got out of their car in the Cheetah enclosure. (I don’t know what they were thinking, but no one got hurt, thank goodness) This park is home to approximately 1,250 animals from over 150 species, varying from small mammals to large birds.  Giraffes, Tigers, Lions, Sea Lions, Crocodiles, Hippo’s, Chimpanzees and Gorillas are just some of the animals that you can encounter at this park.  You can experience the park in many different ways, you can go on safari by car, boat, bus or on foot.  In this blog post, I will show you some of the animals that you can encounter when going to this unique park. Read on for more information and lots of pictures.

CUDDLE A KANGAROO AT FEATHERDALE WILDLIFE PARK, SYDNEY

If you are looking for a hands-on Australian wildlife experience then I advise you to go to Featherdale Wildlife Park in western Sydney. Pat a Koala, hand feed a kangaroo and meet all your favorite Australian animals in an outdoor bush setting. It’s amazing. I arrived at the park soon as it opened so it was nice and quiet, with most of the animals all awake(woohoo)! Favorite part was the different walkthroughs; Pademelons, Kangaroos, and Koalas. the park is very interactive and allows you to feed the kangaroos, touch the Koala’s and learn about lots of different species through keeper talks. In this blog post, I am taking you with me during my little trip to this park.
