The kangaroo population in this area has been steadily increasing since the establishment of the Warrandyte State Park,
which is at the southern end of Shorts Road. If one leaves the gates to the pool area open -- sooner or later a kangaroo will appear.
Viewed through the bay window.
From the laundry door.
But if you approach the kanga will hop away smartly.
Sometimes you'll encounter
the Blue Ringtail, Austrolestes annulosus damselfly.
