A family has spotted an exhausted kangaroo swimming in floodwaters trying to reach dry land after New South Wales was hammered by wild weather.

Amelia Smith captured the footage on Tuesday, near the Mooki River in the Northern Tablelands district of the state, while her family took a boat ride during the floods to look at the damage caused to wheat and cotton crops.

Severe weather across NSW has led to SES crews conducting two dozen flood rescues as well as responding to almost 600 requests for help since Friday.

The video showed a worried kangaroo paddling through deep floodwaters as it looked around at its surroundings submerged in water in the hope to find some land to stand on.

Ms Smith and her two sons offered some words of encouragement for the marsupial as it swam past.

'Keep on going buddy,' Ms Smith said, while one of her children said, 'Keep on swimming.'

The kangaroo continued to swim towards the little area of land filled with grass.

Ms Smith tried to direct the roo to higher land and said: 'That's it. Almost there'. 

SES Assistant Commissioner Dean Storey said it has been a hectic 24 hours throughout NSW but particularly in the Upper Hunter.
