Flinders Island seeks Chief Wombat Cuddler
DEREK, THE ORPHANED baby wombat from Flinders Island stole our hearts last month when a video of him running along the beach went viral.
Now, in a clever marketing response, Tourism Tasmania is offering an Australian resident aged 18 and over the chance to be ‘Chief Wombat Cuddler’ – with the job description mostly entailing snuggles, plus three nights exploring the Island, which is located in the Bass Strait off the north-eastern tip of Tasmania.
The Chief Cuddler will give Derek’s foster parent, Kate, a break from her voluntary duties.
