It is a well known fact that Australia is home to a great many wonderful species of plants and animals, from dangerous to benign and from pretty to awe-inspiring. We at Melbourne on the Move think that Victoria is one of the most beautiful and diverse places in the world, and there’s plenty of unique wildlife and beautiful natural landscapes to see here. Around 17% of Victoria is covered by protected national parks, and quintessentially Australian animals and birds such as kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, emus, wombats, kookaburras and lyrebirds can be found here.
