Dying of thirst


In their ultimate search for water in one of New South Wales’ most remote national parks, these Kangaroos dying of thirst were lured by the smell of fresh water, only four feet down. Unable to access the life-giving liquid, they lay down to rest in the disused cattle station’s amenities block.
