About Wildlife in Australia
Go on an expedition into nature and watch wildlife in their natural habitat. Learn from the expert guides about their habits and behaviour. Expect to live with the rules of nature though, animal sightings aren't guaranteed!
You haven't seen Australia if you have not yet spotted its typical iconic animals. We have some amazing adventures in South Australia to encounter koalas and kangaroos from close-by. Queensland is famous for the ultimate nature around Cape Tribulation and its daintree. Here you will find great opportunities to encounter saltwater crocodiles. The magnificent coasts of Australia offer plenty opportunities to swim with wild dolphins, see penguins and sea lions, or even spot giant whales!

Good season: year-round
Saltwater Crocodiles are best spotted in the cooler months of the year (April-Oct). As the water temperature drops, Crocodiles spend more time bathing in the sun to warm their reptile bodies. This greatly improves the quality of observations, however Saltwater Crocodiles breed during the summer months (Nov-March) and therefore get quite active in the river. Then you can see more Crocodiles swimming and sometimes fighting, rather than laying in the sun.
