The spouses of the G20 leaders visited to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary Park on Saturday. They cuddled cute and submissive koala bears. The visit was hosted by Margie Abbott, the wife of Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, founded in 1927, is home to more than 130 koalas and a wide variety of native animals. Koalas, which are not actually bears but rather marsupials that carry their young in a pouch, are an iconic symbol of Australia.
