HE'S been Dirtgirl's resourceful friend Scrapboy on the hit ABC children's program Dirtgirlworld, a computer mouse in the Channel Ten show Wurrawhy and now former Grafton man, Michael Balk has appeared as the host of a short, tongue-in-cheek "mockumentary" video as part of a Tourism Queensland ad campaign.

The YouTube video features Michael as a documentary host investigating a business venture called "Roo Mail," in the north Queensland community of Cow Bay which has retired the local postman and instead uses kangaroos to deliver mail around town in their pouch.

Launching in early August, the video has already clocked-up more than 174,000 views and attracted hundreds of comments.
