Learn all about Manningham’s unique local wildlife and environment with TV Zoologist Chris Humfrey from Wild Action, ‘The Zoo That Comes to You’.

The Swamp Wallaby is a shy animal that usually lives alone. They can be found in places where there is thick habitat for them to hide in. The Swamp Wallaby feeds on a variety of plants including introduced and native shrubs, grasses, and ferns.

They are regularly spotted early in the morning along our local creeks and the Yarra River habitat corridors where there is plenty of thick scrub for them to hide in during the day.

You will be amazed by what lives in Manningham and maybe even your backyard. You will learn about our incredible local biodiversity and how we can all play an important role in the protection of our native species and our local fragile environment.
