These eastern grey kangaroos taking a break on the grasslands of Kosciuszko National Park may look like hares or rabbits from a distance. But up close, a 6-foot-tall male eastern grey could look a person in the eye. Perhaps only koala bears rank higher as wildlife symbols of Australia, but we couldn’t resist featuring a photo of kangaroos to celebrate Australia Day today. Perhaps these ‘roos are waiting for the fireworks show?
