Tasmania Is Currently Looking For A ‘Chief Wombat Cuddler’

DROP EVERYTHING.

OK I know what you’re thinking, what even is a Chief Wombat Cuddler? Well, you’ll be the chief… of… wombat cuddlng at Tassie’s Flinders Island. Makes perfect sense.

Apparently over the past few weeks, a cheeky wombat from our southernmost state has been getting quite a bit of attention online thanks to a real cute YouTube video. Derek the wombat – great wombat name, by the way – lives out on Flinders Island, and because the Internet is all but obsessed with him, the folk over on the island have decided he needs a little company.

So they’re going to be flying you and a friend out from your nearest Australian capital city to the beautiful Flinders Island to cuddle up with a bunch of wombats in Derek’s home town.

Um, yes please?

All you have to do is fill out the application form here before 10pm on April 16. Entrants must be over the age of 18 and of course, love cuddling wombats. What are you waiting for!?
