Any expatriates who follow golf may have been surprised that play had to be suspended at the Women's Australian Open last week for a very unusual reason.
A group of kangaroos stormed the fairway leaving some of the world's best golfers more than a little bit bemused.
Among those taking part in the event in Canberra on Thursday were ten of the best 20 international female golfers, who were forced to try and ignore the marsupials bouncing around not far from where they were playing.
In summer the capital city of Australia gets particularly dry, which means that kangaroos are forced to look further afield for lush green grass.
Golf courses are an obvious solution as they are well maintained and kept watered, but it is not ideal if an important sporting competition is taking place at the same time.
The problem of drought became so bad at times during the 2000s that kangaroos had to be culled as they were presenting a hazard to motorists as they tried to reach Canberra's watered lawns and parks.
