Capturing our favorite wildlife encounters of South Australia
South Australia is an animal lover’s paradise. Just a short drive outside of the capital city of Adelaide you’ll have the opportunity to see wildlife in the air, on land, or at sea.
To the west, visit Port Lincoln, where you’ll be able to swim with dolphins or dive with great white sharks off the coast. To the east, check out the fascinating amphitheater of mountains known as Wilpena Pound, where you can observe the endangered rock wallaby. You also can get up close and personal with kangaroos and koalas in their natural habitats, or you can visit them in wildlife sanctuaries where people work tirelessly to rehabilitate and care for injured or orphaned animals.
The Wildlife of South Australia is adorable, diverse, and fascinating. If your goal is to see various animal species when traveling Down Under, this is the place for you. These photos capture some of our favorite wildlife encounters in South Australia. Enjoy!
