|| These large mammals are great
survivors and are found on the outskirts of towns and cities
and widely throughout rural areas.
As their habitat is converted to buildings and bitumen places such as golf courses have become their retreats. Certainly Margaret River Golf Course has it share. (See what to do section)
It is thought there are now more western greys than before European settlement because of the abundance of pasture.
Males grow to over 2m tall and are remarkable jumpers. Licences are issued to cull numbers, especially on farm where fence damage can be severe.
Around Margaret River roo fences are required around vineyards as they have deveoped a taste for grapes.
Two good places to see them are the MR golf course and opposite Cape Mentelle winery on Wallcliffe Road, Margaret River.
