A chance to see Australia’s unique animals at close hand.
Many of the most interesting Australian animals are never seen in their natural habitat. Perhaps it's because many of them are nocturnal or, even more likely, because the animals are shy or live in such remote places that any sighting is usually by accident.
Animals of Australia in Close Up is a chance to see an assortment of the continent's unique animals at close hand, including fascinating footage of the koala, platypus, echidna, Tasmanian tiger, numbat, wombat, kangaroo and crocodile.
