Life & Style

Send us your pictures of kangaroos, echidnas and wombats where they don't quite belong.


There have been many accounts of native animals descending on urban areas lately, whether it’s the dry weather or the animals have become more friendly, people are reporting kangaroos taking drinks from the suburban fountain or visiting the regional university to check in on the students. 

In Orange residents have reported kangaroos migrating closer to town in search of food and water.

Narromine farmer Karin Stark snapped a photo of an echidna drinking out of the backyard tap in May. 

“We see a few of them around but I’ve never seen them go looking for water like this,” Ms Stark told The Land. The tap was turned off, but now Ms Stark has a water dish for them to sip from.
