Australia has a bad reputation for dangerous and scary animals, but our country is also home to some of the cutest critters you’ve ever seen. And don’t worry, they won’t bite!

Although Kangaroos are the largest marsupial in the world, they are one of the cutest Australian animals with their big brown eyes and soft and cuddly coat. This animal is also on the Australian coat of arms, symbolising our country’s progress as they are always moving forward and struggles to move backward due to the unusual shape of their legs and bulky tail. You can meet kangaroos in many zoos around Australia, as well as feed one! So don’t be frightened and make friends with this native.

You might have heard of drop bears, which is a hoax revolving around an imaginary animal designed to scare tourists. But have no fear, in the bushland or zoo, you will encounter the cute and cuddly koala! Although they are a bit smelly, it’s impossible to pass up a photo opportunity and a pat with these friendly tree hugging herbivores.

Rainbow Lorikeet

This friendly parrot is one of the most colorful and beautiful birds in the world, and are native to Australia. Although they spend most of the time in trees eating pollen, nectar, fruit seeds and insects, if you visit a wildlife park and have some bird seed in your hand, you might be lucky enough to have a visitor appear on your hand!

Study Anywhere_Dingo


Dingoes are wild canines found in Australia, and unlike dogs, they cannot bark but can only howl. This cute canine has unique paws like hands, meaning they could even turn door knobs. These animals can also be domesticated, although they are harder to train than other dogs due to their independence. But in popular tourist destinations like Fraser Island, these friendly creatures aren’t shy to come up and say hello!

The quokka may just have to be the cutest animal you have ever seen! This cuddly creature is about the size of a cat, with a long skinny tail. Although they are commonly mistaken for rats, there’s no missing their adorable trademark smile. Quokkas are only found in the southwestern part of Australia on the island of Rottnest near Perth.
