Friday, November 9, 2018, 5:17 PM - Is THIS "peak Australia"?

Locals enjoying an early morning stroll at Normanville Beach, South Australia on Thursday got to see wildlife in action -- and luckily, someone had a camera on hand so we can enjoy the scene, too.

Check out the video above, featuring a kangaroo taking a leisurely dip in the water.

You can see 'roo’s head bobbing in and out of the waves before hopping onto the sand.

KANGAROOS CAN SWIM?!

Yes. Yes, they can.

In fact, experts say they're surprisingly good swimmers due to their powerful hind legs.

They aren't marine animals, though. Kangaroos are herbivores, so they don't have much reason to go into the water.

But they will take a dip from time to time, as evidenced by the mountain of water-loving kangaroo footage that can be found on the Internet.

So -- the next time you see video of a swimming 'roo, you can confidently say it happens all the time.
