Water police were called on to carry out a different kind of rescue off Brisbane's coast last week when a wallaby was spotted in the ocean off North Stradbroke Island.

The game little jill had made it 6.2km out to sea before officers caught up with her.

They found her in a very fatigued, disoriented state and swimming in circles.

Police wrapped her up in a tarp and took her back home to North Stradbroke Island.

The wallaby, which officers nicknamed "Dawny" was uninjured, and so released back into the scrub on the island.
