John Long's Introduced Mammals of the World mentions Eastern Greys
introduced to (nearby) South Molle but all apparently of the same sex.
He does mention a few macropod introductions to Queensland islands
but doesn't document any of Wallaroos.  You realize translocations are
much more common that you expect if you browse through it and
the companion Introduced Birds of the World.
