Kangaroo sighting on Macarthur Road, Elderslie


Kangaroos are a common sight in the rural parts of Macarthur but they are rarely seen in the middle of main roads.

Elderslie resident Joshua Hannaford had picked his brother up from work at about 11.30pm last week.

Driving along Macarthur Road, Elderslie the brothers happened upon two small kangaroos blocking their path – right in the middle of suburbia.

“I’ve lived here all my life,” Mr Hannaford said.

“I have seen kangaroos around but never in the main street of Elderslie.

“It was strange seeing them just jumping along the street.”

Mr Hannaford shared the dashcam video on the Camden-Narellan Community Noticeboard Facebook because he thought people would be interested.

“People are always talking about the traffic on Narellan Road, so I wanted to show them that this can happen too,” he said.
