On a normal day Sandra Boldiston has ten rescue kangaroos hopping around her house at the Rootreat Wildlife Rehab Sanctuary.
But these are not normal times.
As the drought continues to ravage the countryside she's had to take in about 30 orphaned joeys as the kangaroos migrate closer to town in a desperate search for food and water.
Water isn't the only thing in short supply these days.
"My savings are starting to dry up now," Ms Boldiston said.
She's been looking after kangaroos out of her own pocket for the past three decades, but she's struggling to deal with the sheer number of injured and abandoned joeys.
That's why she's now asking for donations from the community, whether they be money, blankets, sheets, bottle warmers, fruit, eucalyptus leaves, or portacots.
She's also looking for people who can sew joey pouches or make bed stands for the pouches to hang on, as well as somebody with a property to release the kangaroos onto.
Releasing kangaroos is the hardest part for Ms Boldiston, who always finds it hard to say goodbye when the time comes to send them off into the bush.
"They're in care for so long that they do become your babies," she said.
As the mother to 30 furry babies, she hasn't had a proper uninterrupted night of sleep in years.
The kangaroos need feeding every four hours, meaning many midnight trips to the kitchen to prepare all the milk bottles.
"Sometimes you're running on coffee and adrenaline," she said.
But the long hours and incessant feeding schedules are all worth it for Ms Boldiston, who loves each and every kangaroo like her own child.
"You go through so much with them: sickness, injuries - they really are like your children," she said.
Those interested in volunteering or donating can call Ms Boldiston on 0427 546 180.
