Not sure that this is EGK. May be Wallaroo (O. robustus). I cant confirm as EGK with confidence, sorry.

Actually after looking at the other images from this camera I AM happy to confirm as EGK

This image was taken from a video and I did hesitate whilst looking at it because I thought it could be a Wallaroo but wasn't certain and went for EGK on probability. The video is only 10 seconds but it is 35MB in size. It was the shape of its head when it moved that looked more like a Wallaroo. There are some definite Wallaroo sightings form this camera yet to be uploaded so they were in the vicinity on some days.
