Australian Native Wildlife On Our Property

A couple of nights ago Michelangelo spied an echidna in the bush.  He rushed back inside for the camera.   Thought it timely to showcase some other wildlife on our property, I’ve shared most of these shots before but bringing them all together.

 1. Echidna

2. Kangaroos

3. Koala
4. Kookaburra
5. Micro Bat
6. Possum

7. Eastern Rosella

8. Australian Wood Ducks

    What a lovely place to bring children up! My little girl would be fascinated with that Echidna and kangaroos.

    8. Australian Wood Ducks… we're bird nuts at our house 😉

    Actually we're nuts about all wildlife, we'd have a ball at your place.

    Just amazing, Erin. You know what, except for the Wood Duck (how cute is he!?) and the koala, ever single one of these animals is found at our place too. And we live 20 minutes from the Harbour Bridge in Sydney. True story! I mean, fair enough, those big Kangaroos are actually a small Swamp Wallaby, but we have him, king parrots, echidnas, possums, rosellas, kookaburras, flying foxes and even a blue tongue lizard. So lucky!!

    I am going to do as you have done and try to take a photo of each of these for my own 'wildlife' post. x

    We are very blessed. Only the second time we have seen an echidna in six years, see mobs of kangaroos every day.

    and we'd have a ball hosting you:)

    Thanks:) I was so chuffed to catch the kookaburra. And this season we have about three regular kookas

    That's amazing! i didn't realise you were IN the city!! To see that much wildlife, where you are is mindblowing and I really look forward to seeing your post!:)

    We do, and it was your Eastern Rosella post that inspired me to finally pull all these pics together. That and finding the echidna
