We're planning a 2-week vacation in Australia during the "winter", probably August. I think we'll stay in Port Douglas, activities on GBR, visit Daintree rainforest and then head to the red center (Uluru). I'd very much like to see kangaroos, koalas, and any other wildlife in the most "wild" setting possible while still having a good chance to actually spot them. I see there are many zoos and parks in the area but I was wondering where anyone would recommend for the most natural setting? I was looking at Kangaroo island but that's quite a distance.
Thanks! More questions probably to come.
