Possums are a great part of the Aussie wildlife. Not to be confused with the American rat like opossum, these cute furry critters are fun to find in trees and doing so will keep the kids entertained for a while.

If you've got a torch you can make a game out of it spotting as many as you can.

There are loads of possums to be found in the Hyde Park trees after the sun goes down. They're lazing around in the tree branches waiting for some snacks.

Start at the Liverpool st end of the park and make your way up to the fountain.

Great if you're in town and want to snap a pic with a possum - don't try and cuddle on though, they are wild animals!!
