Riverside camping and devils at Wings Wildlife Park in Tasmania

When you drive to Wings Wildlife Park in Tasmania’s beautiful Gunns Plains make sure you stop at George Woodhouse lookout to soak up that gorgeous valley. It was near here we found an echidna beside the road – a live one, thankfully!  So very cute, they stood very still and just peered at me.   If you are an animal lover, or have some in your family – they will be in their element. The wildlife park  has animal encounters galore – and personally guided tours. So touch an Aussie sugar glider, snake, or exotic meerkats or marmosets… Me? I’d

How beautiful is this? No wonder my mum rated the Guluyambi Cultural Cruise as her favourite day out on her recent Broome to Kakadu trip. As you cruise upstream, the East Alligator River divides the country, with Kakadu National Park on one side and Arnhem Land on the other. Step foot on Arnhem Land and check out the traditional hunting and gathering implements. And you can count crocs! Check out those views of this heritage listed land!
