Only in Australia: Bendy kangaroo joins yoga lesson
IT SEEMS it is not just people who need a morning stretch to start the day.
Captured on camera at Seventeen Seventy, south of Gladstone, this kangaroo joined in an early morning yoga lesson, obviously trying to rid itself of a pesky side cramp.
Tourism company Adventure Blueprint's Tim Booth captured this picture outside his tent after he woke.
Mr Booth is currently travelling around Australia promoting beautiful parts of the country through photography and video.
"I woke up to find out there was a morning yoga class happening outside my tent," Tim said.
"So I rolled up the door of my tent and lay in bed to watch the sunrise over 1770-Agnes Water to be amazed by how friendly the kangaroos were."
Tim said it was a "breathtaking" way to start his day, before heading into town to do learn-to-surf classes.
"...Which, it appears, is a right of passage travelling the east coast. And who wouldn't for $17," he said.
During his three-day camping travels in Seventeen Seventy in late June, a video was taken capturing the essence of what the town is about.

Tim also wrote a blog post during his stay in 1770 and here's an exerpt about his experience:
"During my visit to Byron Bay I was told about a kangaroo sanctuary by a Belgium girl, Wendy. So, as I got closer to 1770, I looked it up.
"Wendy had delivered the goods. Having never heard of 1770 I was unsure of what I was in for.
"I instantly sent a thank-you message and was grateful to be ... on top of a hill overlooking where the sun will rise over the ocean and the the sun would set on the other side of the camp over the mountains.
"It was a simple camp site with all the essentials: toilet, shower and power points to plug in phones.
"I was sitting down for dinner. It was due to be another amazing meal of rice mixed with tuna from a can.
"This time I had decided to go with the tomato and onion flavour. I added a delish taste of a can of vegetables and a teaspoon of pesto.
"This is pretty much a staple for most evenings and the mix-up is the flavour of the tuna. The good life, right?
"I was joined by a German couple.
"Or I thought they were a couple. It turns out they were just really good friends and doing the Cairns-to-Sydney trip that you get to hear so much about at every camp site.
"... We were joined by another German girl and got into an exciting game off Yahtzee. Although Germans have another name for it that I could not pronounce so it stayed as Yahtzee for me.
"Being extremely cultured I know little to no German and by that I mean I know no German.
"So they would all get chatting and laughing in German and being that I like to always be a part of the conversation I could add "Shizen houzen" which I knew full well was not German but at least I tried right? Hahaha.
"We decided to go on a learn-to-surf class in the morning. Flo, the male German, and I decided quickly into the class that we would soon join the WSL and tour the world as we rocked on our 10cm waves.
The instructor, with a long blond mullet, reminded me of what Chris Farley would have been like if he had been Australian..."
