Footage has emerged on TikTok from September, showing three Kangaroos hopping through the once bustling Civic Centre in the nation's capital.

Canberrans are set to come out from lockdown at 11.59pm on Thursday, but it's not the first time kangaroos have been spotted so close to urban areas in the territory.
