Mammals and avians in SA and NSW

Jump to last reply

So here's the current plan for a family trip:

Fly to Sydney, four nights.
Fly to Uluru, two nights.
Fly to Adelaide, four nights.

We only have a short time (Americans on vacation, 'nuff said) and some short people (boy 7.5, girl 5) with us (me, wife). The kids will love to see critters - wallabies, kangaroos, birds, dolphins, whales, etc. We'll probably go to Taronga and Featherdale while in the Sydney area.

We're going in June - first and second weeks. Other than Kangaroo Island, which we may not be able to get to, what good areas are within day-trip distance of Adelaide or Sydney to see the native fauna in the native habitat? What coastal areas will be full of marine mammals?

Thanks in advance.
