Is it lucky when a kangaroo crosses your path?

After the cool change this afternoon, I went for a walk upstream along the Maribyrnong River from Solomon’s Ford.

About 2km up from the ford, a kangaroo hopped across the path and into the long grass just in front of me.

Sadly, it was so quick that I did not have time to get the video out on the phone and record it.

Actually, I don’t think it was a kangaroo. Apparently the type of hopping marsupial which inhabits the upper reaches of the Maribyrnong are swamp wallabies. And this was a rather small and dark cousin of Skippy.

It’s not the first time I’ve seen a wallaby in Avondale Heights. I last saw one 15 years ago in Grimes Flat.

I’m not sure whether it counts officially as lucky, but I do feel very lucky to have seen the wallaby.
