Kangaroo swims up an estuary

Kangaroo filmed paddling out to surf

WE'VE all heard about the boxing kangaroo, but a swimming one?

Danny Tamlyn shot this remarkable video of a roo breast stroking against the incoming tide of Moonee Creek estuary.

"I saw it jump into Moonee Creek in the afternoon and the kangaroo got out of the water fine," Danny said.

It's not the first time readers have reported local marsupials taking a dip in the ocean off the Northern Beaches.
