Australian Wildlife

Stock Photography By Tony Miller

Australia has an amazing assortment of wildlife, ranging from the rare and exotic to the kangaroo and emu shown on our national crest. In addition there are hundreds of different birds and mammals. Many can be seen either close to or even in our cities, particularly our colourful birds. This is a small selection from my photographic archives.
