Tourist Spies Cute Wombat and Youngster Out for a Walk

A tourist on Maria Island, Tasmania, was delighted to spot a wombat and joey out for a walk recently, having made his visit specifically to see the cute marsupials.

Fernando Valiente told Storyful that he was about a meter away from the furry duo, and added that Maria Island is an “incredible place”.

Visitors to the uninhabited island reserve are encouraged to take an oath “to respect and protect the furred and feathered residents.” Credit: Fernando Valiente via Storyful
