Eastern Grey Kangaroo(female and Joey)

Macropus giganteus

Saw this female with Joey in it's pouch from the apartment I was staying at at Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort, Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley N.S.W. They graze freely around the resort and are quite used to humans and don't seem to mind if you get reasonably close
