Can you find your emotion among this lot? No responsibility taken for any mental scaring, they are your emotions. Perhaps I can facilitate some change. Try and stop for a while and appreciate the colours or patterns of the photo that builds a flight response or just stop on the photo that makes you go aahhh and soak up the emotion
This is a story in pictures of the little Joeys growth since we first saw him. I am guessing a him but I don’t really have any idea if the Joey is female or male.
Still not much hair but hanging out of the pouch a bit more
The pink skin is slowly being covered. Same hang about attitude though.
Getting bigger and bolder
More fur and still likes to hang about
Almost completely covered in fur and is curious about the ground and food.
and just like that, out of the pouch
Still likes to hang close to Mum. Sometimes has a bit of a play. Jumping up at Mum’s head or grabbing on to her neck.
Learning how to scratch that itch with those huge feet.
and with that it’s time to follow Mum into the bush
This morning I thought I would get a video of Joey in the garden. This is taken through the kitchen window. My video skills need improving and I tried to use an editing suite but failed. The Wallaby in the foreground isn’t Joeys Mum. Joeys Mum is behind the Grevillea. Enjoy a very fast wallaby zooming around the garden

Since the fire, I have been putting out food for the Red-necked Wallabies and anyone else who was hungry. A while ago I noticed one of the females pouch was getting bigger and eventually a Joey poked their head out (Jump for Joy) and the update
This morning a Red-necked Wallaby hopped in to the garden. I have seen her before as she was one of the regulars who came for food. Today, I noticed her pouch was a bit squirmy and yes she also has a Joey.
As the Wallabies have Joeys, it points to a good season ahead. When the years are not that good as the past 2 – 3 years have been, there hasn’t been many young around. During hard times, Wallabies won’t produce young.
I’ll be keeping an eye out for others now. Having a photographic record I should be able to identify the females and those who have young.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I have seen the Red-necked Wallaby and her Joey. This afternoon she hopped into the garden for a quick visit and a bit of a snack.
Joey has a bit more fur than last time you saw her/him. I was quite happy to see the Mum as she is looking well. Joey still has a bit of skin around the muzzle and eyes but a lot of what I could see has fur. It won’t be long before Joey is out of the pouch and hopping about my garden.
I will be waiting for this little fellow to be big enough to be able to hop out of the pouch and jump for joy, speeding around my garden.
The first sighting of a little face
Five days later getting a bit more fur
