rare rock wallaby

rock wallaby at Trephine gorge in outback Australia

Rock wallaby IMG 4962A - This beautiful Australian native animal is an elusive creature, but patience rewarded the photographer who spotted this agile wallaby dozing, at dusk, on a rocky ledge near the John Hayes rock hole at Trephina Gorge Nature Park. The rugged cliffs and gorges of the park, which is in the East MacDonnell Ranges, are the habitat of rock wallabies that are perfectly adapted for survival in this harsh environment in the Australian outback. The East MacDonnell Ranges lie within easy reach of the central Australian town of Alice Springs, and while many tourists visit the scenically stunning Trephina Gorge, only those who are quiet and who have an abundance of patience are rewarded with an encounter with one of the outback's most elusive residents.
