A Gold Coast resident has woken up to a surprise house guest, with a koala making itself at home on their lounge.
Wildcare Australia was called out to the home in Helensvale to help move the koala, and managed to do so without incident.
The following was posted on Wildcare Australia's Facebook page.
"One of our more unusual rescues! A Helensvale resident was woken in the middle of the night by a commotion, and found this intruder on her sofa!"
"A call to Wildcare and this beautiful, healthy koala was safely relocated to nearby bushland, and everyone went back to bed."
Wildcare Australia has also emphasised the importance of leaving wildlife rescues to the professionals, so in the event that you have a surprise visitor, contact Wildcare here.
