THE WOMBAT LADY OF FLiNDERS iSLAND


Meet Kate Mooney, “˜The Wombat Lady of Flinders Island’ and passionate island local. She first visited Flinders as a wide-eyed teen and fell in love with its wildness and coastline – so much so she returned for a holiday at age 20 and quite simply never left. For the past twenty years Kate has played Mum to Flinders’ orphaned wombats, devoting countless hours to raising them from vulnerable bundles through to their eventual release on her 40-hectare piece of paradise and back into the island’s wilds. Kate’s down-to-earth passion for Flinders and its furry residents will warm your heart and nourish your soul. It will come as no surprise she has no intention of ever ending her Flinders Island holiday…
