We’ve all had some weird and whacky encounters with animals at one point in our lives- but on a caravan and camping holiday, mother nature tends to make herself more known!
We took to our Facebook page and asked real-life campers what their best animal encounters while on holiday.
Check out our gallery & see what they had to say here:
Ursula’s Ultimate Adventures: Echidna yesterday in Yamba!
Nadine BE: Lemon Shark on Dundee Beach (NT). Completely harmless and returned safely to the water.
Selina L: Two Dingoes frolicking in the sunset on Frazer Island.
Brett W: Old mate here decided to consume his dinner 6ft from our Gazebo, the day before we had 3 bush turkeys wandering around then after this day there was only 2..
Michelle M: I was camping and I was sitting in my camp chair in a forest NSW when a spotted quoll appeared. I sat still and it walked straight past my legs.
My second one was when hubby and I were at the Undarra Lava Tubes in QLD, sitting by the campfire when a rat like kangaroo came up. We found out it was a quail.
Sue H: Silverton, NSW.
Romy B: This little poser was up at Halls Creek.
Jeannette M: Spotted quoll, South West Tasmania
Keith H: When Skippy came up for a Beer at Cape Hillsborough
Maria W: A bit blurry but this little cassowary was so nice to see at mission beach
