WATCH: Adorable koala takes her joey for a walk down the street

Only in Australia… An adorable koala and her joey have become a social media sensation after they were filmed taking a casual stroll down a street in South Australia.

The cute outing was filmed by a local couple and posted on the official South Australia Facebook page yesterday.

“Nothing beats a brisk morning walk, right? That also applies if you’re a koala, with a joey on your back no less,” the caption of the video reads.


“While we’re used to seeing these furry marsupials napping in a gum tree after snacking on gum leaves, this pair enjoyed a morning walk on Friday through the town of McLaren Flat on Visit Fleurieu Peninsula.”

“They were spotted near the local bakery so perhaps they were just dashing out for a bit of morning tea?”

The clip has been viewed more than 588,000 times.
