Some paddlers at Narrawallee Creek Inlet in NSW, got a rare glimpse of a kangaroo swimming past

“After a long week of surfing around the Ulladulla region on the New South Wales South Coast, my mates and I decided to spend our last afternoon before returning to Melbourne relaxing in the sun beside the tranquil aqua waters of Narrawallee Creek inlet,” says photographer Phil Skeggs.

“I also brought my trusty Canon Powershot in case there was an opportunity to get snaps of White-bellied Sea Eagles I knew to frequent the area.
As I scanned the skies, my friend Rob swam across to a nearby sandspit exposed by the low tide.

Minutes later he called out and pointed to a large Eastern Grey kangaroo that had appeared near the edge of the sandspit from the adjoining nature reserve.
