Australian wildlife is a draw for tourists
One of the most wonderful things about Australia is the distinctive animals the country has to offer.
If you own rural property, you may often get to see kangaroos hopping around in the grass.
Perhaps you live in an apartment and have cockatoos visiting your window on a regular basis.
What might seem normal to residents is considered foreign and amazing to many tourists. In fact, there are numerous people that travel to Australia primarily to catch a glimpse of a koala bear or crocodile.
However some wildlife experiences are truly unique - even to the locals.
Taronga Western Plains Zoo in New South Wales is introducing an overnight bushland experience to allow visitors to have hands-on close encounters with native Australian wildlife.
With $100,000 of support from the Regional Tourism Product Development Funding Program, the initiative will focus on school groups during the week and families over the weekend.
So, if you have guests from overseas or you're a city dweller that would like to see what the sunburnt country has to offer, stay tuned for further developments.
