Australia: Where to See Lots of Wildlife

Jump to last reply

My spouse and I are planning a trip to Australia in August or September of 2012. We have about 2.5 weeks, and will definitely visit Sydney as well as some location on the northeastern coast (so that we can enjoy both the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest). We'll probably also stop in Uluru/Ayers Rock (see my other recent post if you have strong opinions on that location). It sounds like Kangaroo Island is somewhere that I definitely want to see, because seeing wildlife is a top priority for me. But getting to Kangaroo Island doesn't seem all that easy - it sounds like we would have to overnight in Adelaide both going to and coming from KI. (We would probably fly versus taking the ferry, and we would probably stay on KI for 2 nights.) Is Kangaroo Island a must-see for me if I must see koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, and penguins? Or is there somewhere else on the eastern coast that offers a similar experience? Thanks.
