A keen koala is so hooked on kisses from a pretty cafe boss he meets her once a week for an after-hours smooch.
Eddie has been romancing Lucy Ziwiski at her home in Noosa, on the Sunshine Coast, for the past month.
He gave her a kiss to say hello and ever since then has returned to the same spot at least once a week for more.
‘I heard a rustle in the bushes next to me so I went to investigate and there was this lovely koala,’ she explained after spotting Eddie when she returned home from work one evening.
‘He seemed very curious and not afraid of me. I’d never been as close to a koala like that before.
‘Luckily I remembered I had my camera with me so I reached in my bag with my left hand and took a photo.
‘As I did, his lips touched my lips, it was quite a kiss, and after a few seconds off he went.’
The koala now returns every week for his kiss from the 36-year-old and even turned up on the porch of a neighbour’s house she was visiting.
‘His breath smells of eucalyptus, so it’s very fresh,’ she added. ‘If only guys were the same.’
