I visited Australia for just the second time for a holiday last year. First time out we were over on the RH side near the bottom – visiting Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra et al. Last year we flew in to Darwin and then drove down to the middle. Then flew from the rock over to Perth. It was only when touring from Perth that I saw wild kangaroos for the first time. I just couldn’t get enough of them – every time we spotted them grazing I had to stop the car, get out and go look. Just so exotic for this UK based simple country boy from the sticks. Happy not to encounter any snow whilst we were there.

G'day CB.
I hit a small one at 80KPH and broke my shoulder in 13 places.
Don't try hitting one at 180KPH pics of mate near Ares Rock last year.
