Agile Wallaby The Agile Wallaby (left) is probably the most common type of marsupial in the central Queensland area. It is found north of Gladstone. Because it is so common , it is the one that comes into our care the most.
It is a delightful animal to rear.
At right is a mix of young Grey Kangaroos and Whiptail Wallabies. The Whiptail is often called "Pretty Face& wallaby. These animals have since been released g
red On the left we have the Red Kangaroo. These animals are usually found in the dry inland areas of Australia. We do occasionally get young ones to care for.
Right is a pic of an Unadorned Rock Wallaby.
As it's name implies it lives mostly in rocky areas, but as the photo shows can be sometimes found climbing trees.

roo Left is a photo of 2 young Grey Kangaroos having a bit of exercise. If you look closely you will see the one at the rear is supported only by his tail. It's feet are in the others stomach.
These 2 Roos have since been released along with another lot near the Proserpine dam.
bs At left is a Black Stripe Wallaby. It is obvious when looking atthe photo as to how it got it's name.
We do not get many of these to care for as they tend to stay well hidden and away from roads.
This is a Swamp Wallaby. I don't know how this animal got it's name as it lives in the scrub mostly.It is found all down the coastal areas of Eastern Australia swampy
