Australia's wildlife is one of its most unique and defining features. We're home to some of the most recognisable - and adorable - animals on Earth, with icons beloved the world over. To celebrate our wildlife wonders, Experience Oz has rounded up a handful of the country's cutest - and it's up to you to decide who will take out the title of Australia's Most Adorable Animal.

From renowned icons such as Kangaroos and Koalas to lesser-known (but no-less-cute) species such as Yellow-Footed Rock Wallabies and Mahogany Gliders, Australia's animal diversity is truly impressive. Add in the chance to see exotic species from overseas as well, and you're sure to find an animal that tugs at your own heartstrings.

However, with such a wide variety of species to choose from, which rank as the most adorable of all?

With the help of keepers from zoos, sanctuaries and parks from all over the country, you now have the chance to cast your vote for Australia's Most Adorable Animal below to WIN a trip to meet your favourite furry, fuzzy or fearsome friend in person. You can also help safeguard the future of these incredible animals by donating to the various conservation programs for each zoo, helping to save Australia's wildlife.
