When looking for Australia holiday packages, look for those that pay special attention to Australian wildlife. The marsupials and monotremes, both mammals, are indigenous to Australia. The ‘Land Down Under' has a lot to offer, with a plethora of birds, animals and sea life. Visit Australia if you love the thrill of adventure, or just want to enjoy nature in its purest form.

A National Treasure!

This treasure is not one of money or gold, but something far more valuable. It is Australia's national animal, the ‘Kangaroo', which is endemic to the continent. This is what makes it so special. The kangaroo is a marsupial from the family of ‘macropods', which literally means ‘large foot'. They are known for their big and strong hind legs that help them leap. Incidentally, they can't walk. They can, however, jump as high as 8 feet in a standing position. They can leap up to 30 feet forward and can reach speeds of 40 mph. There are over 60 species of Kangaroos. Many travel deals offer you the chance to see these great animals as part of your holiday package.

Kangaroo Island is a must visit and is included in many Australia holiday packages. Here you get to see kangaroos and other types of unique Australian wildlife including possums, wallabies, wombats, koalas, platypuses and echidnas, to name a few. It is easily accessible from both Adelaide and Fleurieu Peninsula by ferry, air and Regional Express (REX). The Island has many parks and sanctuaries where you can enjoy Australian wildlife. Many of the birds and animals are active at night and, needless to say, night tours are very popular.

Australian Safaris and Excursions

Australia is known for its safaris and excursions in the Great Australian Outback. This is definitely a good destination for those who love the outdoors. There are a number of travel deals that can help you witness the open country, if you are that adventurous. And if you think that it's all hot sun and long walks, you are mistaken. Some safaris not only take you through excursions and exploration, but also offer you a chance to sink your teeth into the fantastic food that is indigenous to this great destination.

Australia holiday packages offer various hikes and backpacking adventures for those who like adventure and exercise. There are also options for pleasant wildlife and nature-based walks where you truly get to see every aspect of the rich Australian Outback. You can also learn more about the intriguing Aborigines, indigenous people of Australia, as part of your Australian education.

A land full of life, history and culture awaits anyone who wants a piece of Awesome Australia!
