Possum in the shed

Our shed is often a sanctuary for native wildlife. A pair of blue-tongue lizards were nesting somewhere near the front of the doors and there's a possum which regularly seems to spend the chilly Canberra evenings in there. 

I went to pull the kids bikes out this morning and saw this possum looking down at me. I tried to coerce it out (with a broomstick) but then saw it had a baby clinging to its back (sadly not in the picture) so I left it alone. 

I'm not sure how they get in (there is a smallish hole in the back which is where I think they enter/exit). I checked this morning and she was gone.
