Wallaby Country

Yello Shed, Waimate. Nov. 2008. Ajr
When I first arrived in the South Island eighteen years ago and saw this yellow shed, just south of the highway turnoff to Waimate, I thought it was a joke - that wallabies could be found there I mean. But it's true - these funny little Australian kangaroo relatives have established quite a colony in the Waimate area. I've never actually seen one for myself and even today there is still a remnant of suspicion that it's all a big myth, but who am I to argue? Meanwhile, this must be one of the most photographed sheds in New Zealand.
