One of the great things about travelling around Australia is the vast array of unique wildlife that you encounter. Tonight we introduce a couple of examples of animals that can be only found down under. Above we find a cassowary out in the wild, a rare bird that is mainly resides in the tropical northeast of Australia in Queensland. We were fortunate enough to encounter one of these strange prehistoric looking birds in the wild. Sadly they are very much a threatened species. Copying his cassowary is Mr Poll Star.
And, of course, above we find the kangaroo, an Australian icon. This particular roo was having a rest in Perth city centre. Indeed, as you can see below he was chilling out with a bunch of his mates at the time.
