"I've worked in a lot of national parks and come across a lot of 'roos out here in the scrub, but this is the biggest I've ever seen," he said.

"He wasn't aggressive, but he was asserting his dominance by standing up tall."

Mr Teasdale said his strategy for avoiding being dragged into a man versus beast fight was to make himself small

"You make yourself smaller so they don't feel threatened," he said.
