Naturaliste Charters get you face-to-face (literally!) with Orcas in the Bremer Canyon region of Western Australia! The season operates from January through to April, so if you're planning a trip Down Under and want to experience this, make sure you visit Western Australia during that time.

beautiful night sky makes the experience even better.

Growing up to lengths of 2.5m (over 8ft!), the Perentie is Australia's largest native monitor lizard and the world's fourth largest. They are found across Australia's outback, including around the Uluru-Kata Tjuta & Red Centre region. Guests onboard a SEIT Outback Australia tour captured this photo - look at that tongue!

Australian Coastal Safaris captured this amazing photograph of an Australian Sea-lion having some fun in the waters around the Eyre Peninsula region of South Australia! This Sea-lion was clearly a little more energic than those having a snooze on the beach.

Emus are found across Australia but are often sighted by tour groups with Echidna Walkabout Nature Tours in Victoria. Did you know they can reach speeds of 50kph (31mph)? Better get those photos quickly!

The Boyd's Forest Dragon is found in the tropics of Far North Queensland. These reptiles really are masters of disguise - James from FNQ Nature Tours says "if you're walking through the rainforest not paying too much attention, you'll walk straight past them." Their ability to remain motionless is amazing!

Recommended tour: Daintree Exclusive

In addition to the amazing coastal views around Maria Island, there is plenty of spectacular birdlife to see! Guests taking part in The Maria Island Walk are often treated to sightings of the White-bellied Sea-Eagle, sometimes even managing to get a photo!
