I thought I would start off my posts about my trip to Australia with one all about the animals that I encountered during my 4 weeks there because lets face it, we all love them!!
I think its only fair to start with Tully, Suzi & Denis' dog!
She is a lovely Rottweiler who endlessly entertained me with her crazyness.

I definitely wanted to sneak one into my suitcase to bring back home!
Budgies at the Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary
I was quite excited to see these as I have one of my own at home and they are beautiful birds
Kangroos having a nosey at me taking their photograph during one of my evening drives with Suzi to find them!
They are the cutest things, I grew ever so fond of them during my trip
And I could not write this post without showing you a couple of the HUGE huntsmen spiders I came across!!!
This was the first one that I spotted on my first evening there. Casually in the bathroom cleaning my teeth when I look in the mirror to find this beast lurking on the wall behind me. I have to admit I was terrified of seeing them before I went but, although they are absolutely massive, they didn't bother me too much... as long as they were stationary!
Another huntsmen - quite an ugly one!
Suzi is convinced they are from planet 'Arachny' and are beamed down to earth to scare us, and I have to say they do look quite alien!
Here are a few meerkats to finish off the post with some cute furryness
This one was quite a character, posing in the bushes for the camera!
