Rock Wallaby Update
An update on the endangered rock wallabies that we are supporting with your help
Creek Colony Update
The Creek Colony, devastated in the January 2020 bushfire, is starting to show signs of recovery. We are so grateful for the change in weather these past few months, with several hundred millimetres of rain falling, the native vegetation at the Creek Colony has started to thrive.
Hopefully this time next year our beautiful creek colony will be back to its old self, and our brush-tailed rock-wallabies will make sure they are there to see it all.
River Colony Update
Several males have dispersed from the River colony over the last year, leaving three adult males, Gingernut, Barellan and Jasper, at the end of winter. There are five sub adults at present – Magic, Ruben, YinYang, Whirlwind and Barinya, and ten adult females carrying joeys at various stages of development.
Yourka has a small joey about the size of your thumb. The bulging pouches of Bangarra, Blackthorn and Rocket are expected to produce little faces for our rock-wallaby monitoring cameras soon. The joeys of Wirra and Bunya are 4-5 months old and have just started poking their heads out of the pouch.

How we’re helping
High and Wild will donate $5 on each full day trip to Friends of the Brush Tailed Wallaby who are working to protect the Kangaroo valley colony.
Funds raised are being used for food drops to remote wallaby colonies. As the bush recovers from the recent fires and food becomes more available we will direct funds into other programs supporting these endangered animals.
To help support these animals, simply tick the box on checkout and we’ll send $5 from your booking to Friends of the Brush Tailed Rock Wallaby.
