A kangaroo and her joey decided to hop into an open home in SA’s Fleurieu Peninsula, near Adelaide.
The home, located in the Lower Inman Valley, was being shown by real estate agent Jemma Turner. Ms Turner told Madeleine Dunne of Yahoo 7 News that the kangaroo inspected the laundry, master bedroom and living area before hopping out.
The incident was captured by potential buyer Katye Ward and her daughter Hannah, who filmed the roo and her joey. Ms Ward noted that there were a couple of other kangaroos out in the yard, so it was clear that one just decided to hop in.
It’s no wonder the kangaroo was interested in SA property.
While Melbourne and Sydney could potentially pop, Adelaide continues to chug along, posting solid growth of 4.1% for residential house prices in 2016.
On top of steady growth, there is also the great wineries, schools and all-round liveability that Adelaide and SA have to offer.
The Fleurieu Peninsula is situated just 45 minutes south of Adelaide and offers some of SA’s best food, wine and festivals. According to the Fleurieu Peninsula website, there are over 100 cellar doors featuring wines from 4 distinct regions, and cafes and restaurants offering local flavours.
Water-related recreational activities are also popular and the region is known for sports such as fishing, diving, swimming, surfing and sailing.
If you are thinking of moving to the Fleurieu Peninsula, you might want to consider some of these properties.
