Most tourists coming to Australia are eager to see our native wildlife and one of the best places to view them in their natural state has always been in the Australian National Parks, particularly at Wilsons Promontory.
Only a short few minutes drive after entering the main gates, we usually see kangaroos and emus in the clearing on the left hand side of the road. Wombats are more easy to spot in the evening, but driving after dark means taking more caution on the roads so we give them time to move off to the side and not dazzle them with our headlights.
These Eastern Grey Kangaroos are often found grazing on grassy plains, local football ovals, in paddocks and even close to the center of our Capital City in Canberra.
Wildlife, roos, emus, wombats and birds are fairly easy to see on the terrific walking tracks at Wilsons Prom too, especially if you take off early in the morning before they’re bothered by others with the same idea.
