This is Tegan the Wallaroo, who featured heavily in last year’s series of photos.
I find it very difficult to distinguish between Tammar wallabies and Red-necked Pademelons, so I’ll leave these tentative identifications up until someone comes in to correct.

The roo with the collar is Zoe, who was hand-raised at the wildlife park.
