The Short-eared Rock-wallaby (Petrogale brachyotis) is a species of rock-wallaby found in northern Australia, in the northernmost parts of Northern Territory and Western Australia. It is much larger than its two closest relatives, the Nabarlek (Petrogale concinna) and the Monjon (Petrogale burbidgei).
The Short-eared Rock-wallaby is a gregarious vegetarian, found in rocky hills and gorges. It is variable in its appearance but is generally grey-brown with white areas around its face and legs. It is not considered threatened.
A number of subspecies have been recognised, but these are probably invalid.
