Kangaroos and their relatives are known as 'macropods'. Other macropod species include wallabies, wallaroos, rock-wallabies, pademelons, quokkas, and tree-kangroos. The term macropod means 'large footed'.
All macropods have powerful legs that act like springs, big feet to help them hop, and a long tail to help them balance. The larger kangaroo species can jump up to three metres high and nine metres long with one bounce. Some can travel as fast as 70 km/hr.
Lone Pine's free-range kangaroo reserve is home to four macropod species; red kangaroos, eastern-grey kangaroos, swamp wallabies, and red-necked wallabies. Open daily 9:00am-4:30pm.
