Quintessential Australia

What could be more Quintessential Australia than kangaroos sitting under the shade of a tree during the middle of the day?

Quintessential Australia

Of all the things I expected on our short visit to Australia recently, this glorious scene alongside the river came as a complete surprise.

As to when we’ll see something like this again… “mum, how much longer?”

  1. Beautiful photo, especially since it was not taken in a zoo. For some reason, I can never wrap my mind around the fact that kangaroos are real creatures and that they can be found in the wild. Seems too fantastic and unbelievable to me 🙂

    • I know what you mean. When we lived in Australia I remember being on the phone early one morning and looking out the window saw three kangaroos jumping through the trees beside us. No one believed me until one afternoon the children and I drove home and voila, three kangaroos eating the grass 200m from our home!


    • I think so. Darling Daughter actually witnessed half a dozen kangaroos hopping one behind the other and is still kicking herself she never thought to take a photo, lol!


So... what did you think?
