Six species of wallaby introduced into New Zealand from Australia about 100 years ago have become established. These are the red-necked wallaby (Macropus rufogrisea) in South Canterbury and near Lake Hawea; the black-tailed (M. bicolor) and black-striped (M. dorsalis) wallabies on Kawau Island; the dama wallaby (M. eugenii) on Kawau and around Rotorua; the white-throated wallaby (M. parma) on Kawau; and the brush-tailed rock-wallaby (Petrogale penicillata) on Kawau, Rangitoto and Motutapu Islands. A key is provided for their identification.
