Tasmania Part 5: The Animals

Throughout our trip we chose not to go into any wildlife sanctuaries or zoos – more because we didn’t have the time than anything else. We were blessed though to see heaps of beautiful animals in the wild. Sadly we missed out on seeing any iconic Fairy Penguins or Tasmanian Devils. However we did see heaps of wallabies at Freycinet (unfortunately tamed by all the tourists) and heaps of beautiful birds. There were some sea birds I had never seen before, which looked like oversized seagulls. And we got a very quick glimpse of a seal in the Port Arthur harbour!
