Significant sighting

31 Aug 2017

This is the first sighting of a Wallaroo on Red Hill since 1998. Great that they are making a return, with a family in residence.

Author's notes

Very surprised and excited to bump into these guys yesterday, and managed better photos today. In addition to the pictured individuals, an additional adult female and second juvenile. Possibly a second adult male, and other individuals? Definitely 4 individuals at the very least. They're very shy and I didn't want to push them onto Gowrie Drive.
