Swamp Wallaby

Wallabia bicolor

I’m still amazed that there can be wallabies in backyards this close to the city. Growing up around here I never saw a wallaby in the bush, or even heard of anyone seeing one. I wonder what’s brought them back.

They seem to hang about near the house much more during winter and spring, they’re often here in the morning having breakfast, and sometimes stay for the day lounging in the sun.

  1. Hi, we did the bush walk from the Roseville bridge to Grattan crescent today 7/10/20. Our group was very excited when we saw a swamp wallaby on the track in front of us.
