Tourism Investigation on backpacking

Hi, my name is Emma Ialeggio from Mary MacKillop College in Adelaide, South Australia. As part of my Stage 2 Tourism assignment I am currently investigating the question "Does backpacking in Australia provide an authentic host destination experience?" If possible can you please answer the questions  below, as I believe the information you provide will be highly beneficial for my studies. Thanks -          What motivated you to travel to Australia? -          What were you interested in experiencing whilst travelling around Australia? -          How long did you travel within Australia for and where? E.g . . .

How did kangaroo get the name kangaroo?

How did kangaroo get the name kangaroo? Apparently the first English speaking people asked the Aboriginals what the kangaroo was called. They answered kangaroo but I heard that that meant what are you on about. Is this true? has anyone else heard of this? . . .
