Heya Ausssiegall - I think this is a Red-necked Wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus). They can look pretty similar to a swamp wallaby (Wallabia bicolour), but they tend to be lighter in colour, have black tipped feet, tail and edge of the ears and the forearms are less chunky.

Thanks, that's interesting to know, I am only a novice at this and learn something new each day. There are a few of them around I will have to try to get photos of the others to see if they are the same. We even have a grey/white one which I will dig out the photo of and submit. It would be interesting to find out what he/she is
