Kuranda Koala Gardens have a cute new addition and they’re now looking for help with naming the new bub.

The new female baby Koala is only 8 months old and has just started to emerge from mum Pixies pouch.

Kuranda Koala Gardens are running a competition to help find a name for the new bub and wildlife manager Meg Markle said visitors can vote on one of three names.

“The three names to choose from, as chosen by the keepers, are Flora, Belle, or Ella,” she said

“Normally we would have visitors cast a paper vote, but since we can’t leave things out for people to touch, they can just verbally tell their choice to a staff member located at our koala perching photo area who will be keeping a daily tally.”

To vote just visit the park anytime before July 12 and you could win a Mega Wildcard which allows 2 adults and 2 kids to visit, Kuranda Koala Gardens, Birdworld Kuranda and Hartley’s Crocodile Farm as many times as you like for 12 months, valued at $325 dollars.
