The location of Waratah Park is never really given. Although the actual park is located in Duffy's Forest on Sydneys northside, the park in the show must be huge as it starts on the coast whilst in one ep Sonny is said to be walking around Jenolan, a location thats is over 100kms from the coast. It is intimated that the park is outside Sydney in the bush yet they are always able to make a short drive to a suburban shopping area or even to drive Clancy into the Conservatorium of Music in the heart of Sydney city.

Skippy's trademark 'tchk tchk tchk' noise was entirely fictional. Kangaroos make no such sounds. It was produced by someone clicking their tongue. See more »
I remember watching Skippy when I was little. It was in syndication here in the U.S. back in the late '60s and early '70s. Skippy was a kangaroo. There was one episode in which Mike Hammond had to dart a wild kangaroo to relocate it away from a populated area.
Sonny, Mike's son, didn't want him to shoot Skippy by mistake.
Mike's love interest in the show was Clarissa "Clancy" Merrick. I haven't seen the new series.
