As you travel around Australia, you will come into contact with some of our most feared and unique animals. Many of Australia's animals are endemic to the country. Byron Bay has dolphins which can be seen daily, and hundreds of whales as they migrate past at certain times of the year, also wallaby's, koalas and echidnas. One day my granddaughter (5) had to sit in her classroom for an hour while a snake slowly made it's way across the ceiling of the room. At their school there are snake sighting signs all of the time around the classrooms.
