I was wondering if somebody could help. I've got this trip to Daydream Island from a few 
years back. Locally, they refer to the macropods as "rock wallabies" but 
there's really only two types that could occur: Proserpine and Unadorned.

The animals have some striping in the tail and black tail-tip but are generally 
plain coloured. They don't look like rock-wallabies facially - more like 
kangaroos, but they are not big enough.

Anyone have any knowledge / suggestions about what these are?
