South Coast NSW Big cats

Hi my name is ####, and back in 2002/3 I saw a large tan coloured cat run  across the road in front of my car driving between Gerroa and Gerringong, NSW
The best way I can describe it is as a cougar.
I now live in Kangaroo Valley and black panther sightings are common but this was definitely tan
coloured, but very very large with a very long slinky tail.
I hope this helps.
It was approx 2am and it is a farming area and it had come from large cow pastureland.
