Australia€™s ancient continent tops the list for wildlife-seeking travellers with its unique creatures roaming diverse habitats, from eucalyptus-dotted woodlands to the awe-inspiring beauty of the coral reefs.5/5(9). "The Australian Museum complete book of Australian mammals" Publisher: Nth. Ryde, N.S.W.: Cornstalk Publishing, , c Note: This is a large hardcover book with photos of every species of Australian land mammal. I have used this book as a reference for a lot of the descriptions and distribution maps on this web site.   The continent of Australia is home to an extraordinary variety of wildlife, and this captivating book highlights many of them. Tasmanian devils, koalas, and echidnas make their homes in leafy forests and woodlands. Other animals, such as kangaroos and wombats, inhabit dry grasslands/5(7).   Animals of the Australian Outback: Animal Encyclopedia for Kids is a book that I really enjoyed reading. I have a love of things in Australia. I have some family that lives in Queensland, so it makes me a bit bias. When I look at this book it reminds me of this gorgeous country, great weather, good food and the amazing wildlife that live there. /5(44).

The book is written by Steve Irwin’s wife who recounts the story of their meeting and their lives together and looks at the amazing things that both of them have done to preserve wildlife in Australia and other places in the world. Australia broke away before any hoofed animals, cats, bears, monkeys, rodents or other placental mammals reached it, but did have monotremes (egg-laying mammals) and marsupials (mammals whose young are born at a very immature stage and attach firmly to a teat inside a pouch or between protective flaps of skin for the next few weeks).   Discover the amazing wildlife of Australia; this Australian animals list has pictures and facts on Australia’s most famous animals (and many of its lesser-known species).
