The Story of Yellowfoot  (1983)

A film of the yellow-foot rock wallaby which has managed to cling to its home in the Flinders ranges while its fellow mammals have vanished with the arrival of settlers. At one time it was thought to be on the verge of extinction but 'yellow-foot' lives on in the remote vastness of the ancient mountains. This is the story of its struggle for survival entwined with that of the ranges and the way that they have shaped all life there - both animal and human.
