A wallaby is a small- or mid-sized macropod found in Australia and New Guinea. They belong to the same taxonomic family as kangaroos and sometimes the same genus, but kangaroos are specifically categorised into the six largest species of the family. The term wallaby is an informal designation generally used for any macropod that is smaller than a kangaroo or wallaroo that has not been designated otherwise.

I photographed these gorgeous little Wallabies at a Western Australian Wild life sanctuary (where they are cared for by a loving family, after being rescued and not able to be released back into the wild due to some form of  injury)
