What are wallaroos predators?
Argh, I procrastinate on papers too much. Also, their food source wouldn't be a bad thing to include either.

Wedge-tailed eagles (Aquila audax), dingoes, foxes and crocodiles besides humans & their dogs. They graze on various grasses and low herbaceous plants.
Grass species Capillipedium parviflorum & Sehima nervosa are both native perennial grasses that would be suitable.
"Black Wallaroos were estimated to eat about 75% grass in the Dry season and 93% grass in the Wet season." Both Black Wallaroos will eat more plants specialized to grow on rocks like Ficus or browse on other low shrubs than the larger Common Wallaroo in the same habitat.
Wallaroos prefer low-fibre tussock grasses but will get by on a poorer quality diet when spinifex is the dominant grass.
