We photographed these Eastern Grey Kangaroos resting beside the walking track at the Walka Water Works. They look very shy, but have been known to attack people who are walking or jogging on the tracks.
One of the largest kangaroo species, the eastern grey kangaroo has soft, thick, grey-brown fur. An adult male will commonly weigh around 50 to 66 kg and females usually weigh around 17 to 40 kg.
The Walka Water Works – situated near Maitland, New South Wales – has a large lake area, with about 140 species of birdlife and easy walking trails around the lake and through the park.
