How you can help

There are a significant number of Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby sites on private lands. Consequently, responsibility for their welfare rests with private landowners as well as government agencies. One of the most important aspects of Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby survival is the active involvement of local landholders and the community. Landowners and interested people can help by notifying their state parks agency of any Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby sightings.

  • If you see signs of Brush-tailed Rock-wallabies when you are out bush-walking or rock-climbing, report this to your state parks agency.
  • You are most likely to see Brush-tailed Rock-wallabies in the early morning and evening when they sun themselves on rocky points or ledges.
  • A sure sign of the presence of a Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby is a pile of its droppings (scats). These are a distinctive cylindrical shape with a point at one end.
