In New South Wales, the commercial harvesting of kangaroos is managed in relation to a number of kangaroo management zones established across the inland parts of the State, extending west from the tablelands of the Great Dividing Range through to the South Australian border. Some or all 4 of those species of macropod identified as large kangaroos, the red kangaroo (Macropus rufus), the eastern grey kangaroo (M. giganteus), the western grey kangaroo (M. fuliginosus) and the common wallaroo (M. robustus) are currently harvested from within 14 kangaroo management zones. Two of these species, the eastern grey kangaroo and the eastern subspecies of the common wallaroo (M. r. robustus) are harvested in the Northern Tablelands region of northern NSW.
