Kangaroos are the most well known of all the Australian Marsupials, although wombats, koalas and echidnas are not far behind. They can be found in rain forests, plains, coastal areas, deserts and high mountain regions of Australia.
The largest of the kangaroos are red kangaroos, weighing up to 95 kilos. Kangaroos were even larger thousands of years ago, now extinct mega fauna that lived in Australia along with giant wombats and wallabies.
Wallabies nowadays, although often mistaken for kangaroos, are smaller than most species of kangaroo.
There are a number of places to visit near, in and around Sydney as well as throughout Australia where you can go to see kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, koalas and echidnas, amongst other Australian marsupials. See Australia Attractions.
