If you’re coming to Australia, you’ve got to cuddle a koala! Why not cuddle a koala as soon as you’ve landed, right inside the airport?!
How is this possible you’re thinking? Smiling Bear, the adorable blue koala fast becoming Australia’s character mascot, is now available exclusively at Discover Australia stores at all major Australian airports. Come and cuddle the giant koala plush and get that perfect selfie picture!
And while you’re at why not pick up an Australian plush koala or three! Our new Smiling Bear koala plush range has launched and makes the perfect Australian souvenir to take back home with you. There’s a 4–inch backpack clip-on plush koala, a 7–inch plush koala and a 10–inch plush koala.
The 7-inch and 10-inch plush koalas both have a beautifully lined Secret Smile Pocket™, that perfect place to hide and keep safe your precious mementos that make you smile. Each pocket is lined with our signature SMILE MORE pattern. What will you put in your Secret Smile Pocket™?
We also have a plush coin purse and plush phone and camera pouch, both with a red carabiner clip, and again lined with our signature SMILE MORE pattern.
So if you’re visiting Australia, when you’re at the airport come cuddle our koala, Smiling Bear.
He’ll be looking out for you.
As an Australian owned character and company, Smiling Bear will be supporting the Australian Koala Foundation (the AKF) by donating a percentage of profits and helping to raise global awareness for the koala and it’s protection.

There’s nothing better than having really sweet dreams. That funny feeling in your tummy because you’re so happy.
And then, when you wake up for just a moment, you’re desperate to get back to sleep. You want to return to your dream.
But wait, this isn’t the same dream? Where has the sweet one gone? Oh well, you’ll just have to drift off on a different adventure…dream on dreamer.

We all get bored of doing the same old things, every single day.
The thing is, there’s no excuse for being bored. You create your own day, and it’s up to you to make it interesting.
Dig in deep – it’s time for a change!
