It was a dream come true for some. For others it was just plain cute.
People got up close with a koala at Kyabram Fauna Park last Friday.
They petted, talked to and posed for photos with the two-year-old Australian native animal called Kay.
‘‘It was everything he had ever dreamt of,’’ Shepparton’s Alice Watson said, translating for Columbian tourist Juan Manual Serna.
‘‘All he wanted to do when he arrived in Australia was to touch a koala.
‘‘He says it was just breathtaking and so cool.’’
Canadian visitor Christine Provencher also gave the experience the thumbs up.
‘‘It’s certainly made my holiday,’’ she said.
After months of preparation, park manager Ron Pope said he was pleased with the official opening of the exhibit.
