Kangaroos are an icon of Australian wildlife and grace our coat of arms. A favourite of tourists as they are distinctly different to other animals. In the interaction between kangaroos and cars, the cars win. The eastern grey kangaroo, local to the area, eats grass and rests during the day to browse at night. They're the worlds largest marsupial and can reach 90kg and 2 metres tall. Female kangaroos can have a joey in the pouch feeding from one teat and another ‘at foot’ feeding a different milk from the second teat. They only breed when conditions are good and can hold a foetus back indefinitely in bad seasons. Living in mobs, they shy away from humans. It takes 4 kangaroos to eat as much as one sheep. The bushfires of 2019 decimated the wildlife including kangaroos in the national parks locally and across Australia.
We love our mob of wild kangaroos they are bits from many mobs and are what made it thru the bushfires and floods now calling the gasses of Rocklily home.
Dianna has designed a range of local animals either real, extinct or an First Nations myth and they now are affordable garden art. Wombat, Koala, Kangaroo, Quoll, Thylacine, Drop bear, Bunyip.
Initial designs were Funded a community arts project by the Shared Spaces programme, a NSW Government initiative to Upper Lachlan Shire Council. The target was to get motorists speeding thru our local small town of Taralga to slow down and stop and look around. So sharing roads with cards and wildlife
