Brush-Tailed Rock Wallabies used to be widespread across the rocky country of south-eastern Australia from southern Queensland to Victoria. They inhabit rocky escarpments, granite outcrops and cliffs with complex fissures, caves and ledges, preferring areas where these structures face north, for warmth. In the early 1900s hundreds of thousands were shot for their fur and as agricultural pests. Now they are prone to attacks by feral animals such as foxes and competition for food resources from goats and other introduced species. Only about 15,000 to 30,000 are thought to remain.
