Summer in Australia, which is in the southern hemisphere, takes place in the months of December, January and February. Hot days, endless blue skies and beautiful beaches are a hallmark of this season.
The Red Kangaroo is the most iconic of all Australia's animals, instantly recognised as a symbol of Australia. The Red Kangaroo is mostly nocturnal, resting during the day. These beautiful creatures are endowed with a pouch in which they carry their young, and powerful hind legs that allow them to hop great distances.
