Koala rescued after wandering onto busy Gold Coast road

An adventurous koala has literally stopped traffic after wandering into a busy intersection at Coomera.

The koala was spotted on the road last night before it decided to try and climb up a set of traffic lights.

Several motorists pulled up at the intersection to try and help.


A number of drivers grabbed towels and clothes from their cars to try and grab it.

The koala was in no mood for a helping hand though, resisting efforts to rescue it.

Eventually the passers-by were able to grab the koala before taking it to the side of the road away from traffic.

It still wasn’t keen to find a tree though, climbing up another road sign before being left to its own device.
