These natives are a little bit shy and rely on us to keep the environment healthy for them
Out and about anywhere in the Yarra Valley or the Dandenong Ranges there’s always a chance of spotting a kangaroo, a lyrebird or a wombat. Drive carefully and keep your eyes open (and don’t forget to look up too – that’s where the koalas will be).
Roos and Wallabies love the wide open spaces of golf courses. The grass is literally greener and there is plenty of space for long hops with friends. Dusk is the best time to spot these marsupials who also love to hop in a vineyard just for fun.
Birds love these cool climate sheltered areas and many species will share common space. Move quietly and look for tell-tale signs of activity on the forest floor. Any time of day.
Often elusive, koala bears can be spotted asleep in their gum trees during the day but will be more active during the night.
Although most people think snakes when they think reptiles (and summer is the high season for snake activity), there are many other types of reptiles out and about in the region, at any time of the day or year.
