Wallabies are widespread across mainland Australia, Tasmania, and Papua New Guinea. All wallabies are marsupials, the young are called joeys. They have a pointed snout, large ears and a fur coat that can be colored gray, rufous (reddish brown), brown, black, or white. They tend to be more active in the evening an early morning, especially those in dry areas. We currently have one female wallaby on the farm, June. Sweet and gentle with people and once she gets to know and trust you, she loves attention. Like the kangaroos, she is cautious at loud noises or when someone walks up to them too quickly, so we encourage all visitors to approach them slowly and quietly so that she has time to realize you are there to love and respect her. She can be affectionate and loving once you have earned her trust and is often found napping on her “day bed” inside her shelter throughout the day.
