#1 Jamala Wildlife Lodge, ACT
Jamala’s Wildlife Conservation Lodge will have you wondering whether you’re in Canberra or the Savanna.

This place is a major holiday for animal lovers and while it’s a little more expensive, it’s completely worth putting aside some money for. You’ll also get a tour around their National Zoo and Aquarium and get to meet some of the awesome animals. View their site here!
