Koala just can't escape the big wet

THE big wet that struck the east-coast of Australia has left us all battling to stay warm and dry over the past couple of days.

But a spare a thought for this little guy.

Absolutely drenched by the rains, this koala down-sodden, ahem, trodden with the weather as it tries to clamber up a branch at the Australian Reptile Park on the Central Coast.

The marsupial gives it a few attempts before giving up and testing out a neighbouring branch.

Success!! Hopefully, it found some shelter from the downpour.
