The Kangaroos of Hill End NSW by 


265 views as of 22nd August 2011

Hill End in mid western NSW Australia is an old gold mining town that was once a thriving township. Today the Kangaroos would out number man in town as they and the town come under the protection of the National Parks and Wildlife Service. We found a huge mob grazing late one afternoon and I felt excited to be able to capture what appeared to be Mum & Joey with Dad in the background. Maybe Dad was saying “I told you ma not to talk to strangers”.

Taken with the Nikon D90, Tamron 18-270 mm lens, hand held.

I love the challenge of capturing what I see, admire and love. To share it with you is an added bonus. Photography to me is recording history. Please explore my galleries and enjoy♥

    there are some big kangaroos in hill end , good cature Bev

  • Thanks Phil … especially for the favourite. We noticed that numbers were really up all through the district. Maybe the extra rain this year provided heaps more food … and I believe this leads to more joeys too♥

    You have captured these very well Bev. Very nice Australiana shot. Well done!!!

  • Thanks Anna … especially for the favourite. These ones were at Hill End and weren’t as friendly as those we saw at Morisset the other day … they kept us at a comfortable distance. They are so beautiful♥

    Wonderful catch Bev!! I do believe the feed situation affects the population … lovely to see them thriving.

  • Thanks Rosalie for the comment. The female kangaroo is quite unique in that she won’t allow the embryo to develop if she feels the environment is not healthy so I think the rain in this area has meant many joeys this year♥

    Great shot Bev. I love the joey. I saw a roo at Hill End when I was there a couple of years ago. I remember it because I had my lens roll off the bonnet of the car while I was rushing to change the lens ! It survived the fall.

  • The things we do … LOL! (shouldn’t laugh but I had the image in my mind). Thanks heaps Michael for the comment … they were everywhere this visit … we really had to watch out on the road, even in daylight♥

    Hey Joey, look at the camera you dope!. LOL A nice capture Bev.

  • Hi Al and thank you … I did get a couple with the joey looking towards the camera but there were other distractions … I might play around with zooming in and featuring Joey by him/herself♥
