UPDATE: Kathy Mitchell is the winner of this competition, nominating the name Coco.
Kathy said: “I’d like this gorgeous joey’s name to be Coco after all the beautiful coconut trees at Thala which we remember from our honeymoon there.”
We’re thrilled at Thala Beach Nature Reserve to have around 50 wild agile wallabies (plus a wallaby joey or two!) that inhabit our native forest. Most guests who have visited over the past few years will have heard of gorgeous #AppletheWallaby who makes daily unscheduled appearances in Thala’s lobby. She’s a big hit with guests, has been featured in the media across the globe and has developed quite a fan following on social media.
The big news is that her tiny little joey has started poking its head out of the pouch recently! We’d love your help in naming this exciting new addition to Thala’s wallaby population.
We’re giving away two nights at Thala for the person who nominates the joey’s chosen name!
