Black Wallaby / Swamp Wallaby

This is a Black or Swamp Wallaby (Wallabia bicolor).  This relaxed looking individual was having a good feed around the camp sites at Tidal River in Wilsons Promontory National Park.

This species is common all along the east coast of Australia, and can be found in a variety of habitats. Like many of the animals at Wilson Prom, this individual is clearly used to being in the proximity of people.
