little boy pets a kangaroo at maria islanda australia

2/8  Kangaroos, Maria Island

Just a short ferry ride from Tasmania, Maria Island is full of curious ruins, curving beaches and eucalypt forest. The range of wildlife is exceptional, including kangaroos, wombats, wallabies, Tasmanian devils and Cape Barren geese, so animal-lovers will be spoilt for choice. Nothing says, 'welcome to Australia' quite like seeing a kangaroo in its natural habitat.
