They're cute, they're furry, they do cube-shaped poops. Yes, we're talking about wombats...on Wednesday!

We were stumped on what gift we wanted to give you this festive season. But then we realised, you’d been dropping hints all year.

So, in honour of your favourite day of the week (yep – we did the maths), we present you with the top 12 Wombat Wednesdays of 2019. Along with some tips to help you finish the year.

On the first day of Christmas my national science research agency sent to me… a wombat with some cute feet.

Heading to the beach? Remember to Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek, and Slide!

The end of the year is a time to reflect, and think back to earlier this year (like when it was actually pretty chilly and our furry friends found snow).

It’s a reminder to give yourself a hi-five for smashing another huge year.

And we know gift giving can be difficult, but try to think outside the cube.

Take time to show those closest to you just how much you love them.

Because if you scratch their back, they might just scratch yours.

Let go of the past (even if it cost you the grand final).

⁣⁣Norm has caught Grand Final Fever! ??⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Baby wombat Norm came into care after his mum was hit by a car. He was rescued by a member of the public and taken to an after hours vet who passed him to a wombat carer. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ He will be in care until he is 25kg (currently he weighs only 1.4kg #bless) before being released back into the wild.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Don’t worry – Norm isn’t lonely. He is even a bit of a ladies man, with the company of fellow orphaned wombats Dot and Alice. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ So smol. So precious. A national treasure. We must protect Norm at all costs. ?⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Image: @animalhealthaus⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #wombatwednesday #csiro #australiananimals #wombats #wearecbr #WeAreRaiders #NRLGF #Canberra #Raiders #wildliferescue⠀

Tuck in to some fresh Aussie food, maybe even some prawns.

Take the opportunity to rest and recharge, it’s a tyreing time of year.

And start looking forward to the future, because psst! We will be back with more Wombat Wednesdays next year!


No matter where this holiday season finds you, we hope you spend it surrounded by incredibly cute wombats (and if you can’t, friends and family will do).

Thanks for another great year. We couldn’t have done it without you.
