Wallabies are as uncommon as things get in Hawaii. In fact, sightings of these animals are so rare that it’s only every few years that someone is able to snap a pic. But for any animal lover, Kalihi Valley in Oahu might provide that once-in-a-blue-moon picture.
The wallabies found in Kalihi Valley aren’t natives to Hawaii. In 1916, two brush-tailed rock-wallabies escaped from a private home to Kalihi Valley, where it’s believed they started their own colony.
Wildlife managers have estimated that as many as 40 wallabies might be living in Kalihi Valley. So grab your camera and a pair of binoculars to see if you can be the next visitor to spot a wallaby.
