On this day …….. 31st of January 1932

A story of a remarkable combat between a goanna and a wombat is related by eye-witnesses who were on a holidaying at Kangaroo Valley. The fight commenced on a hill side, and the goanna gradually worked the wombat to a hole in a creek at the bottom of the hill, where the fight was continued. The wombat gradually weakened, and, finally, the goanna held it in a tight grip under the water until it was drowned. The victor then retired to the bank, where it engaged in a satisfying meal from its quarry. The wombat was nearly full grown.
