They say the quokka is the happiest creature in the world, but you might just give it a run for its money! It’s rare to see you without a smile on your face – you’re always happy or always looking on the bright side of things. People love being around you because you’re always overjoyed to see them, and your bubbly personality and friendly attitude is contagious. You’re trusting, curious and always love meeting new people, because every stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet! Also, you’re probably super cute…so that definitely helps you out. If you want to meet your Aussie spirit animal, Rottnest Island in Western Australia is the place to be! Book your stay at Perth City YHA or Fremantle Prison YHA and get your selfie stick ready for the ultimate #quokkaselfie! Just don’t be tempted to abandon civilisation and live amongst them!
Wooo, you’re Australia’s most iconic national animal! You’re super popular and everybody knows who you are, but you never let the hype get to your head. You’re chilled out and happy to mind your own business, but will never let anyone cross you. If they do, you’re definitely capable of doing some damage! You’re fiercely protective of people you care about, so people like being close to you, and you also like being around people who are similar to yourself: cool-as-a-cucumber and easy-going, but strong and smart. Kangaroos outnumber Aussies approximately 2 to 1, so if you book a stay at pretty much any YHA across Australia, you won’t have to look far for a kangaroo experience!
You’re a koala, one of Australia’s most beloved marsupials that people come from all over the world to admire. Look, you’re either asleep or eating most of the time, but when you’re not, people still love being around you because you’re gentle, sweet, relaxed and just bloody love cuddles. But as much as you like people, your idea of a perfect day consists of eating a lot and then collapsing into a food coma for the rest of the day, and you know what?! You’re proud of it! Fun fact: koalas sleep for around 20 hours a day and it’s not because they’re drunk from eucalyptus, it just takes all their energy to digest it! You can find out everything you need to know about koalas here! Or, fancy cuddling a fellow koala? Book yo' stay at Magnetic Island YHA!
You’re the “other” animal on the Australian coat of arms, but you’ll be damned if anyone thinks you’re lesser! You’re an extremely proud being – you ooze confidence, always walk with a purpose, will never accept anything less than the best and you command respect without even trying. When people get on your nerves, you let them know about it! You will never let yourself be ignored, bullied or taken advantage of, and that’s a really good thing. You are also fiercely loyal and protective of others, and if you see someone you care about being mistreated, you simply won’t let that slide. To some people, you may come across as irritable and moody, but really you just don’t have any patience for silliness! Don’t try to hide it, flaunt it! You’re fabulous and the world envies you. To meet your fellow emus up close, book your stay at Adelaide Central YHA and check out Cleland Wildlife Park! Pats and feeding welcomed!
