This brushtail possum was feeding quietly by the roadside this afternoon around Elderslie in southern Tasmania

That's a fine image, which truly looks like a roadside sighting.
The detail you've captured in the subject is outstanding, especially the feet.
As yours truly has never seen any possum, in the wild or in a zoo, it's a revelation to me that their feet are as shown above.
Thank you for posting this for those of us with no direct familiarity with Australian wildlife.

Sorry I forgot to list the wildlife even though most would recognise in the above post.
We travelled June 2016 to Denham.

@Hads @ElaineAust Yes, a Great Egret and an immature Pacific Gull (perhaps 2nd year bird).

I spent a month in Africa Sept' - Oct' 2016 and did not see a snake.
Less than 24 hours after arriving home I'm riding my mountain bike and on a track near my home I find this.

We were staying up in the Great Dividing Range (c100km inland from Brisbane) which is where most of the wallaby photos were taken. We also came across this Goanna (I think a Lace Monitor) which posed nicely whilst tree climbing:

This echidna was digging for ants at the roadside as we drove through Nubeena, a small town on the Tasman Peninsula yesterday.
This photos shows the impressive length of the front digging claw.
