The Pretty Faced Wallaby, Whiptail Wallaby or Notamacropus parryi is a species found in eastern Australia. It is locally common from Cooktown in Queensland to near Grafton in New South Wales. It is distinguished by its paler coloring and white stripe under its face.

Notamacropus parryi faces have a chocolate brown fur covering their muzzle. They are black and white on its chest and the rest is grey to brown fur.

Males weigh from 14 to 26 kilograms and stand at a height from 70 to 93 cm. Females weigh from 7 to 15 kilograms and stand at a height from 65 to 75 cm. It is primarily a grazer. In grasslands, Notamacropus parryi eat kangaroo grass.

The Pretty Faced Wallaby or Notamacropus parryi lives in grasslands and woodlands particularly on hills or slopes. Notamacropus parryi eats monocots in nearby creeks. It is a diurnal species. It is active in the morning and late in the afternoon but continues into an unknown extent during the night.

The Pretty Faced Wallaby or Notamacropus parryi is a sociable species, sometimes coming together in mobs of up to 50. They live in a home range of up to 110 hectares.

They usually gather in the afternoon during feeding. The mobs contain all ages and sexes throughout the year, but seldom if ever were all members together at one time.

They often split into continually changing subgroups of fewer than ten animals. They have a linear hierarchy that is determined by ritualized pawing which is non-violent. They may also pull grass.

Wallabies will cough to show submission. These bouts function only to determine access to oestrous females.
