The swamp wallaby emerges shyly at dusk to feed on the native shrubs, grasses and ferns. She is surrounded by an array of native botanicals: flannel flowers – a symbol of purity, safe and soft; native gingers, ferns and grass trees. Overhead is a cathedral of majestic angophora trees and flowering gums, common to her habitat. She lives harmoniously with the birds, the snails and the insects. This is her habitat and her community.
