Work has started on the Port News' very own koala for the Hello Koala Sculpture Trail being launched in September.

Port News has been lucky enough to secure the youngest Hello Koala artist, 21-year old Rebekah Brown who also happens to be a nursing student at Southern Cross University's local campus.

We look forward to giving you sneak peeks as the sculpture comes to life with Rebekah's colourful, pop art-inspired design.

Eventually, the yet-to-be-named koala will find his/her home near Lady Nelson Wharf.
