  • A female cyclist was riding on Australia Day 100kms west of the Gold Coast
  • A kangaroo bounded into the cyclist’s right shoulder and flew into the air
  • The rider was left with a partially dislocated shoulder after the accident 

Spectacular footage shows the moment a kangaroo bounded into an oncoming cyclist taking a leisurely ride on a rural road.

The rider Rebecca was left injured on Australia Day after the kangaroo knocked her off her bicycle near Boonah, 100 kilometres west of the Gold Coast.

Her right shoulder was partially dislocated after it was hit by the animal, according to Nova.

The freak accident was caught on camera by a fellow cyclist and uploaded to Facebook on Monday.

The footage shows Rebecca setting the pace at the front of a group of riders who are making their way through the south-east Queensland countryside.  

A kangaroo can then be seen innocently hopping from the right-hand side of the road towards the group.

Rebecca has little time to react and makes heavy contact with the intercepting roo, who bounces off her. 

The kangaroo rotates in the air, miraculously landing on its legs before hopping off, seemingly uninjured.   

Meanwhile, the cyclist appears to come off second best after crashing into the ground. 

The Facebook post revealed that Rebecca ‘has had a good laugh’ about the accident despite her injuries.
