Other Macropods

Red-legged Pademelon

Some Red-legged Pademelon (Thylogale stigmatica) feeding. They are among the macropod browsers, and hence eat leaves and fruit as well as grass. You can see more of Red-legged Pademelon on the Movies page.

Goodfellow's Tree Kangaroo

A Goodfellow's Tree Kangaroo (Dendrolagus Goodfellowi) munching on a leaf. This species is native to Papua New Guinea.


The Quokka (Setonix brachyurus) is a delightful little animal that lives mainly on Rottnest Island off the coast of Western Australia, so called because an early Dutch explorer thought they were rats.

Rock Wallabies

The Allied Rock-wallaby (Petrogale assimilis) is an opportunistic feeder, making it a willing target for 'wild feeding'. These semi-tamed specimens live on Magnetic Island. (Photos courtesy of Kiroo.)

Agile Wallaby

This charming female is an Agile Wallaby (Macropus agilis jardinii) which is normally found in tropical Australia and Papua New Guinea but is also common on Stradbroke Island.
