    We have my niece here from the uk and having a ball taking a month out to show her around!......doing well with seeing wild, wildlife (apparently zoos and NP's don't count!) I think all we need to find now are wild echidnas and wild wombats!

     

    here is her meeting a thorny devil up near kings canyon......:jiggy:

    I'd love to know where the best spots for spotting wildlife are, please! Preferably near Gawler (north Adelaide), if possible?

    Spotted a wild echidna by the road on Kangaroo Island back in April - if that helps.

    We are actually impressed reading her list!.......so she says she is still waiting for a Platypus and a wombat and believe it or not we haven't seen a single snake since she's been here, spending sometime at a friends place up the river next week tho so that will take care of that!
