The Bennett's wallaby, also known as the red-necked wallaby, is a medium-sized marsupial known for its distinctive reddish-brown fur and white markings on the face and chest.


With their powerful hind legs, they can cover great distances with ease, bounding gracefully across the landscape. Bennett's wallabies are primarily nocturnal, spending the daylight hours resting in shaded areas to avoid the heat.
