A Literal Stampede Of Kangaroos Invaded A Golf Course In Australia And It’s The Most Australian Thing

Footage of a "fair dinkum stampede" at a private golf club near Melbourne has gone viral.

Footage of hundreds of kangaroos invading a golf course in Australia has gone viral, and even golfers at the scene were astonished.

On Wednesday Mar. 6, a mob of kangaroos bounced across two golf courses at a private golf club near Melbourne, Australia.

Golfer Stephen Roche, who witnessed and filmed the incident, can be heard calling it a “fair dinkum stampede”, then jokingly warning the kangaroos “better not stand on my golf ball.”

He posted his video on X, formerly known as Twitter, and wrote, “We have kangaroos on our 2 courses at Heritage Golf & Country Club, but I’ve never seen this before!”

The video went viral shortly after and gain thousands of people’s attention.

When asked whether kangaroos damaged the greens, Roche replied, “Surprisingly no. Soft footed animal. The only sign of them is footprints in bunkers.”

Another two golfers also posted videos of the “roos invasion” from different angles in the comments, adding that it “felt like forever.”

In Australia, roaming kangaroos at golf courses is a common sight, but kangaroo attacks still happen occasionally.

In 2022, a woman was attacked by a kangaroo while playing golf in Australia’s Gold Coast, leaving her injured with severe cuts and scratches.
