This cute koala lives way out Woop-Woop with all his mates. Swaggy spends most of his day asleep and is late for most things – except for dinner.

Koala Fact: Did you know koalas sleep up to 20 hours a day.  This is due to a need to conserve energy because of the low calorific value of their food?
About the Swagman : A swagman was a wandering labourer who travelled by foot from farm to farm carrying his belongings in a swag (a bedroll named Matilda). Swagman where often called sundowners as they would arrive like clockwork at sundown, just as all the daily work was finished and just in time for dinner.
