Australian Vacation: Kangroo Hunting

On our way back from dinner last night, we asked the cab driver if he could suggest any places where we might see kangaroos in the wild. Around here, kangaroos are a lot like deer are in the US - they are a nusiance and a hazard to people and cars. Oh, and both can be found on various menus.

One big difference between kangaroos and deer - kangaroos can attack and hurt you, while deer simply scamper off.

The cab driver didn't just tell us about where we can find them, but drove us around a bit till we found this group of 'roos. It took us about 10 minutes to find these guys.

While searching for kangaroos the can driver took us to the top of a hill overlooking Canberra. I don't think the photo does the area justice - it really was impressive by night.
