She's not only an Aussie icon, named after one of Australia's most famous songs, and lives at Australia Zoo, but Matilda the Koala celebrates her birthday on the most Aussie of days - Australia Day!
Joining Matilda for her 13th birthday at Australia Zoo is another true-blue Aussie icon, John Williamson, as he performs the National Anthem, among other iconic songs, live in Australia Zoo's Crocoseum on Tuesday 26 January.
All the Aussie action starts at 8am, with FREE lamingtons, billy tea and damper for the early birds, and more fun than you can poke a stick at with the slippery Vegemite-thong race and sack race. Traditional dance group the Gubbi Gubbi will perform throughout the day, and there will be a STACK of awesome prizes up for grabs in the Major Prize Draw.
If you've been flat out like a lizard drinking, come celebrate Australia Day in true-blue Aussie style at Australia Zoo, where Crocs Rule!
