I just love wombats. There is something about their short, squat shape, their waddling walk and their super cute faces that make me smile whenever I see them. So I was thrilled to see so many in the wild on a recent visit to Maria Island in Tasmania with Coral Expeditions, on assignment for Get Up & Go magazine. Maria is Tasmania’s only island national park and is home to Cape Barren geese, Bennetts wallabies, Forester kangaroos and Tasmanian devils. Wombats, which are marsupials, are nocturnal, but they were out en mass in the late afternoon during a walk to the convict ruins at Bloodstone Point. They were more interested in feeding than in us, so we were able to get close to them for some super cute photos, like this one. Hope it makes you smile too. Merry Christmas!
