"Roos playing golf after hours at Merimbula" Australia Off The Beaten Path Tip by pilgrim55

  Roos on the Golf Course
by pilgrim55

In the evening, the roos come out to play on the golf course near Merimbula. They have very keen ears. When we turned on our camcorder, it made a tiny little ding sound, and they all lifted their heads and looked our way.

These are wild kangaroos, so it wasn't long before they decided we had gotten too close for comfort and they took off.

We also saw a dead roo or two on the highways in the mornings that must have been blinded by headlights the night before. We nearly hit one early one morning as it bounded across the highway in 2 big hops.

Some Aussies told them that they are very pesky really...that they eat the shrubbery in their yards and often are in the roads.
