Grey Kangaroos Encroaching On Towns

While most tourists (especially those from Asia and Europe) delight in seeing native wildlife when traveling through South Gippsland, over the last 20 years or so, more of the Eastern Grey Kangaroo have been noticed on farmland and roadsides where the smaller wallabies once reigned supreme.

On our property in Foster, they didn’t bother us much as they easily bounded over the fences and really only stooped underneath them where wombats had previously left their dugouts. We occasionally spotted them grazing on short tufts of grass in the early morning or evenings, but if you want to see them in hoards, a trip to Wilsons Prom National Park will always net you the best pictures.

This one was seen near the small township of Meeniyan and seemed to be fairly accustomed to seeing the odd human or two.
