Located 275 km south-east of Sydney, Pebbly Beach is the home of a large colony of kangaroos. Set up camp and enjoy the beach while waiting for the sun setting. Only then you will find yourself surrounded by those curious little marsupials.

What you see here in Pebbly Beach is the Eastern Grey Kangaroo, as the iconic red one – the largest of all kangaroos and the symbol of Australia – is only found across mainland desert and arid areas. Hilarious selfies with roos are guaranteed!
