    The enclosure in the aviary is currently empty. The golden ones were a no show, but that’s hardly surprising given my visit occurred in the middle of Storm Dennis and they’re not showy even on the best weather days!

    A reasonably productive day, though common wombats continue to evade me, as absurd as that sounds..

    Phillip Island Wildlife Park
    18. Red-necked Pademelon - Thylogale thetis
    19. Swamp Wallaby - Wallabia bicolor
    20. Spotted-tail Quoll - Dasyurus maculatus
    21. Parma Wallaby - Macropus parma
    22. Tammar wallaby - Macropus eugenii
    23. Black-striped Wallaby - Macropus dorsalis
    24. Common Wallaroo - Macropus robustus
    25. Eastern Grey Kangaroo - Macropus giganteus

    Moonlit Sanctuary
    26. Feathertail glider - Acrobates pygmaeus
    27. Yellow-bellied glider - Petaurus australis
    28. Long-nosed potoroo - Potorous tridactylus

    Very likely that I’ve already seen a good two-thirds of my annual total.

    It’s going to be quite time-consuming to win this challenge if you keep taking it one species at a time.

    Hey, I'm the one who picked marsupials/monotremes when my proposed Australia trip isn't until 2021. Thanks @ThylacineAlive

    Apologies if this is too off-topic, but what places are you planning to visit in Australia?

    Scientific names would be appreciated moving forward as well :)

    (not that I imagine we'll have a whole lot of confusion as to which common name is for which species as far as marsupials are concerned)
