Maru Koala and Animal Park Tour

Australia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Australia is located in the southern hemisphere and is also one of the seven continents. Australia has a very diverse landscape and is known for having mesmerizing natural beauty. Australia is massive in size and is the sixth-largest country by area and though much of the area is still uninhabited, but it gives for unexplored and untouched beauty.

Australia is so big that it is home to 10,000 beaches, over 500 national and wildlife parks, and numerous islands that provide breathtaking and enthralling views. Australia’s in the Southern Hemisphere, sort of tucked away down under the globe.

There’s something catchy about that phrase, down under — maybe the Australians should start using it to describe their country’s unique geographical location. Oz isn’t really close to anything. It’s got the longest stretch of perfectly straight railroad track (297 miles). The longest fence in the world, almost 3,500 miles of it. The longest golf course (almost 850 miles). Sheep outnumber Australians by almost 8 to 1. Kangaroos outnumber them by almost 2 to 1.

Oh yeah, and the Australians once declared war on emus. And lost. They have their own country music, their own football, and cattle ranches larger than some countries. Oh yeah, and apparently going barefoot in public is totally normal. Australia’s remoteness, exoticism, and all-out weirdness—sprinkled with just enough cultural and historical similarities really bake an American noodle that makes Australia such an interesting place

Apart from a distinctive natural landscape, Australia has also the most unique and diverse wildlife with animals which are only found in this region and no other place in the world. The country is home to a wide variety of animals, birds and reptiles. The most famous animals of Australia are Kangaroo, Koala bears, platypus, dingo, wallaby, emu, inland Taipan, Crocodiles, Tasmanian devil, Wombat, The Sugar Glider, and echidna.

And not only does Australia have a crap-ton of weird animals, but they all have weird-ass names, too. Platypus, echidna, wallaby, kangaroo, bandicoot, kookaburra, wombat, numbat, and quokka. Seriously, quokka? Who comes up with this stuff?

Both the Kangaroos and Koala bears are a symbol of Australia and only native to the country as they are not found anywhere else in the world, particularly the Kangaroos. The Kangaroo population is around 50 million, and the animal has a distinctive feature with large hind legs, and small front legs and females have a pouch for carrying the young Kangaroo baby.

Koala is herbivore animals that are mostly found in the coastal and eastern parts of the country including Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, and New South Wales. Although the Koala is called a Koala bear this small animal does not belong to the bear family but is a marsupial, and its closest relative is a wombat.

The koalas are grey and chocolate brown, having a large head and fluffy ears. Koalas have a stark resemblance to the stuffed teddy bears that nearly every kid has in his childhood, and it is also the reason why the animal is so loved not only by residents but thousands of people who come to visit Australia.
