This dazzling duo showcases two of Australia’s most recognisable icons – the koala and the kookaburra. The koala is an internationally recognised symbol of Australia. An arboreal marsupial, it spends most of its time in trees. Inactive during the day, it feeds on the foliage of the eucalypt at night. The kookaburra is the world’s largest kingfisher native to Australia and is renowned for its distinctive raucous laugh.
