Down here they're called farms with the bigger places of a couple of thousand square miles called stations and it's called Melbourne(capital of Victoria).
It sounds like they live at or near Bell's Beach that hosts part of the world surfing championships.
To shoot kangaroos down here farmers have to have permits to cull them as they're a protected species or you have to do a TAFE(Technical And Further Education) course on handling and preparing them for human and animal consumption and Parks and Wildlife can only issue these permits.
this is a red Kangaroo which is the largest of our Kangaroos but there's also Grey kangaroo's as well plus a few other different species.
Don't believe any of the tree hugger's hype and lies that these animals are becoming rare because it's estimated that since white man has landed and farmed Australia Kangaroo populations have increased dramatically in 200 years because of cropping and the installation of permanent dams on farms meaning better food and more permanent water.
