“Witness the amazing diversity of these remarkable creatures and see how kangaroos thrive in the unique climate on the spectacular Australian continent”

Marvel over the true nature of Australia’s beloved kangaroo as National Geographic takes you from lush rain forest to rugged outback for an up-close encounter with kangaroos and the spectacular land down under!

The red kangaroo survives in one of the harshest environments on Earth: Australia’s inland plains.

High summer temperatures keep the kangaroos inactive during the day, yet these animals thrive and have adapted to various climates, creating a large network of cousins - more than 50 species in all.

National Geographic’s beautifully filmed Kangaroo Comeback follows a red kangaroo mother and her joey and traces the family tree of these extraordinary animals, showing the special relationship the mother's pouch affords the pair.

Half the kangaroo species Down Under are extinct, endangered, or vulnerable due to human settlement. Remarkably, the red kangaroo has actually thrived due to the livestock wells dug across the desert.

Discover the kangaroo’s constant struggle to cope with its outback enemies, from wild dingoes and wedge-tailed eagles to human hunters. From Olympic-calibre jumping giants to gravity-defying cliff dwellers, this is the definitive look at these wonders of natural engineering.

We watch the joey’s own transformation from an embryo in his mother’s pouch to the time when he must leave it to make way for a new addition to the family. Within 48 hours of the grown-up joey permanently leaving the pouch, a tiny embryo takes its place and the cycle begins again.

He joins the other young males, learns to fight and becomes a much-sought-after commodity, hunted for his meat and skin.
