You don't see this everday! A staff vehicle coming up the¬†mountain¬†witnessed a rare sight¬†when they saw this wallaby happily sitting on the side of the road near Baldy Hollow this morning. Interestingly¬†he wasn't frightened at the sight of¬†a car and¬†he continued to¬†make his way¬†up the road. To make sure he got to safer ground,¬†the¬†Hotham staff vehicle¬†escorted¬†Skippy for approximately 100m¬†until¬†he found open¬†space¬†near Diamantina Hut. With snow showers forecast this week, he will need to keep¬†hopping¬†to stay nice and warm!
If you are coming up to enjoy the snow¬†these school¬†school holidays,¬†make sure you take your time on the roads¬†and drive safely.
