Australia is home to its fair share of adorable and fascinating animals, including wombats.

For those who want to get up close and personal with the furry creatures, the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary in Queensland, Australia offers visitors the chance to walk the wombats and make adorable memories.

Visitors can walk the santuary’s two resident wombats, Lee and Janome, both of whom are full of energy, according to sanctuary representatives. 

“Most Australian marsupials are nocturnal and like to sleep during the day, but not our two wombats Lee and Jenome, because when it comes to guests visits, these two furry bundles have a serious case of FOMO,” the sanctuary's website states.

Take a look at the cuteness overload you'd be in store for with the video below:

While wombats appear cute and cuddly, they can have short tempers if they feel threatened, according to the San Diego Zoo, which is why visitors are given instructions they must follow to ensure safety for both themselves and the wombats. 

Perhaps the best news of all is that you are invited to bring your camera to capture the experience.

Wombat Walk

Southern Hairy-nosed wombat, Lee, loves his daily walk with wildlife keeper Claudette, but at only 11 months old it doesn’t take long before he is in need of some extra TLC, including a bottle of milk, lots of hugs and a nap!

The wombat walk experience is available every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday for $35 per person.
