Hey there!
Just an Idea for you If you are willing to buy a few plants, Kangaroos Dislike the smell of some plants & planting a border of (Lavender, Rosemary, Eucalyptus*They don't like the smell of the leaves, Paperbark trees, some proteas, Grevilleas &, Wormwood ect.) around the plant you are trying to protect.

Obviously Its not a fix it now sort of idea but in the long run making a garden Might just do the trick & it saves you from messing the place up with wire & shit or chemicals.

Kangaroos Mostly stay away from High Fragrant Plants & don't eat them So it makes sense to put them in the way of your main plant you want to protect.

p.s Myrtaceae family also contain essential oils which Most natives don't mind but irritate the guts of kangaroos.

Hope this help or at least gives you some ideas :) 
Good luck with the bastards they can be a pain but theres way around them!

I used D-Ter a few times and didn't really work. I bought it from Ebay. It didn't bother my dog either.

I pissed in a bucket only and would take it to my plot daily and it didn't work.

Dog hair didn't work either.

The only thing that worked was fencing.

You could try spraying your plants with the hotter Tobasco sauce and Ceyanne pepper.

First off, make your fence about 8 feet high. Sure Kangaroos won't be able to jump over it?

If it is not at all preventing animals from nibbling your MJ ;leaves, would it be better to grow indoor instead?


Please check if Solo 420 Sprayer is still available in the market. It can probably help.

Have you tried putting or rubbing soap to some of them leaves?

Animals don;t like the smell of soap.
