I started photographing the Talbingo Mountain eastern grey kangaroos that have made their home on the lower slopes when we first started staying at Talbingo Tourist Park each Easter. This was years before the decimating bush fires of the summer of 2019/2020.
Before the fires there literally hundreds of kangaroos that called the mountain their home. We would see huge numbers grazing on the local golf course and then watch as others would make their way down past the Tourist Park to drink late in the afternoon. If we were travelling along the Snowy Valleys Highway after dark, it was a slow journey as there were quite a few on the highways edges, nibbling at the soft shoots of mountain grass and we had to avoid hitting them.
Sadly the fires wiped out a vast number of roos, but there are still many that entertain us as we visit the Talbingo Mountain area.
