Wallabies Beware! is the twenty-eighth album created by Scott Harwood. The album will be distributed on the Shedpop label. Wallabies Beware! is the third part of Harwood's Australia Trilogy.

In contrast to most of Harwood's previous albums, which usually took one or two days to record and release, Wallabies Beware! took over two years. The album was mostly composed in Harwood's van in Australia.

The full album was released on YouTube on the 6th of September 2016, however the title track, Pipe Dreams and I'm Sorry were all released earlier.

Production on the album was completed on the 4 August 2016 after long delays.
