Bring joy to your day with adorable Aussie wildlife
No matter where you are in the world, let Australia's wildlife bring some happiness to your day.
It's no secret that Australia is famous for its amazing wildlife experiences. While you plan the perfect trip to meet our furry, laid-back animals, why not tune in to their chilled out vibes from home? They'll be sure to put a smile on your face.
Sit back and relax with this contented koala
Wolverine the koala, who lives at Queensland’s Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, lives a ‘no worries’ lifestyle. His favourite way to unwind? A nice, long belly scratch.
Slow down with this serene sea turtle
There’s nothing like gently floating in the calm ocean current to put your mind at ease. With 17 different beaches surrounding Great Keppel Island in the Southern Great Barrier Reef, this soothing sea turtle has her pick of morning swim spots.
Snooze the alarm like this sleepy quokka
Everyone needs a sleep-in sometimes, especially this cosy quokka on Western Australia’s Rottnest Island. Take inspiration from our mate and make the most of a slower pace of life.
Let loose like South Australia’s sea lions
The underwater antics never stop in South Australia’s Port Lincoln. The Eyre Peninsula is full of unique wildlife experiences, one of which is the chance to dive into the water with these playful sea lions.
Tune in to virtual kangaroo cuddles
All you need is love... and kangaroo cuddles. There are plenty to be had at The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, where dozens of orphaned kangaroos are rescued and rehabilitated, and looking for affection.
Hang out the Australian way
At the Australian Reptile Park in New South Wales’ Central Coast, the weather’s nice, the gum leaves are plentiful, and the pace of life is very Aussie – chilled out to the max.
Get active like this wombat
It’s not always easy to keep calm, and nobody knows that better than this southern hairy-nose wombat at The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs. Take a leaf out of his book and up your activity from the comfort of your own home. Star jumps anyone?
