According to the "Action Plan for Australian Mammals" there have been no 
confirmed records of Brush-tailed Rabbit-rat in the Greater Darwin area since 
1993, and it is now thought to have been extirpated in Kakadu Nat Park, with no 
captures since 2008 despite ongoing monitoring.

Your observation would more likely to have been the still regionally extant 
Black-footed Tree Rat ....

Late one night a couple of weeks ago I saw a Brush-tailed Rabbit-rat on a 
Darwin River road.  There is one other record of what sounds like this animal 
from this area, from a local man.  

If any Birding Aussers are in the vicinity of Darwin River could you please let 
me know of any sightings?
