Taking the perfect kangaroo shot selfie at Lucky Bay in Cape Le Grand  can be a fantastic experience to share with your social media friends, it's one reason why lucky bay was voted best beach in the world due to its social media exposure!


Lucky Bay, located in Western Australia, is known for its beautiful white sandy beaches and its resident kangaroos that often hang out there. To capture the perfect kangaroo shot selfie, follow these tips:

  1. Respect the kangaroos: Remember that kangaroos are wild animals, so it's essential to observe them from a safe distance and not to disturb or approach them too closely. Maintain a respectful distance to ensure your safety and theirs.


  2. Choose the right time: Kangaroos are most active during early mornings and late afternoons. Plan your visit accordingly to increase your chances of encountering them. When we have camped at lucky bay we have  noticed in the early mornings just around Sunrise in the golden hour they are out and about.

  3. Be patient: Kangaroos can be a bit elusive or skittish, especially if they feel threatened. Be patient and allow them to become comfortable with your presence before attempting to take a selfie.

  4. Use a zoom lens or selfie stick: To capture a good kangaroo shot selfie, consider using a camera with a zoom lens or a selfie stick. This will allow you to maintain a safe distance while still getting a clear shot.

  5. Frame the shot well: When taking the selfie, make sure the kangaroo is in the background or part of the frame. Position yourself at an angle that captures both you and the kangaroo in a visually appealing way.kangaroo framed in a selfy shot at cape le grand

  6. Natural lighting: Take advantage of the beautiful natural lighting at Lucky Bay. Position yourself so that the sunlight is illuminating your face and the kangaroo evenly, resulting in a well-lit and vibrant selfie.kangaroo during a golden hour end of the day shoot at lucky bay

  7. Practice safety: Always prioritize your safety and the welfare of the kangaroos. Avoid any actions that may startle or provoke them, and never feed them or attempt to touch them. Remember, it's their natural habitat, and we should respect their space.
