Yes, having lived on 5 acres for over 10 years, I had 4 kangaroos that often came to my property as they used to be pets.

They were quite friendly at first and then multiplied! the 4 turned into 6 and then they started damaging the place.

I had also seen kangaroos on a friend's farm before that -they look so cute but do so much damage to properties.

Yes, quite a few while driving or camping. Lots dead on the roads too, unfortunately.
I have seen so many Kangaroos,and wallabies as well,in their natural habitat,since coming to live in north Queensland! They are so majestic to watch,but it was a real education for me to learn of the immense damage they do to fences and the environment as well!
When some Yanks come to Australia, they expect to see kangaroo's walking down the streets, well if you have a visitor coming, you can take them to a small town just north of Brisbane called Toorbul where they do walk all over the place, especially around the Esplanade. The locals encourage them and they are everywhere
Yes lots of times while out bush walking in different national parks.

I see pademelons and wallabies all the time.
Yes many times.
I once lived in the Blue Mountains, and at the bottom of our street...some would come up from the valley below.
I also have patted them in a inclosure.
Have seen the in the wild....too.
Plus the odd dead one too, on the road which is upsetting.
Yes out in the bush, driving my car and on the property the family use to own down at Gerroa.
Yes many times over the years

Unfortunately, I've never seen a Kangaroo in the wild.

Not as yet.
I saw 2 of them yesterday. Unfortunately one of them was dead and the other one was sitting next to it. It was most probably hit by a car because it was a sharp left turn.

I've seen the occaisional one on bush trails while I've been walking. We travelled in the outback a bit this year but it was the height of summer when we went, too hot for the animals to be out during the day. The only roos we saw along the Stuart Hwy were dead. We did have a large one jump out in fron of traffic ont he way back into Broken Hill one evening and years ago the same happened on the way to Mount Gambier, again at night.
Yes, just on Saturday on the special Dunolly diesel train, between there and Ballarat, several Kangaroos hopped away from the tracks and I managed to get a photo of that.
Yes, in the wild.
Yes. They come to nibble on the grass car park of C3 Church Hepburn Heights. The church property backs onto Pinnaroo Cemetery where they live. Also there are a bundle of them living in the confines of the Marangaroo Golf Course
Yes, we had lots of kangaroos at our high school. It's a shame they started disappearing when the school grounds expanded. No doubt they'll disappear altogether with this wretched airport that's to be built.
by Vee
yes queensland they do do a lot of damage to fences
I've only once been to a zoo. That was enough for me. They had no kangaroos and I've never seen one.
Yes. We'd always seen the roo-poo they'd left behind in our back yard, then on Australia Day a few years ago, we woke to find one resting under a tree! He stayed for about an hour, casually munching uncut grass before squeezing under the lax back fence and sauntering away! The photo was taken through our screen door before we realised this roo was very laid back and relaxed!
Yes, lots of times in conservation parks when we are out hiking. The biggest number seen at any one time was when we visited Onkaparinga National Park. They were relaxing in the shade all together as it was quite a hot day.
Yes, heaps of times. Once staying with a friend I used to wake and look out the window to see them on the walkway alongside the river which was where her back fence was. My friend used to leave a large bowl of water beside the fence for them to drink from. But on the other side, friends on the land suffer greatly from damaged fences and crops. They may look cute but they can be dangerous and very destructive.
Yes, many times, whilst driving in our 4WD, enroute to various places, to camp.
