An orphaned koala across the ditch who became an international star after images of him were posted on Tourism Australia's Facebook page has been released back into the wilderness.
Jimmy was hit by a car on the New South Wales coast a few years ago, in an accident that killed his mother and left him badly injured.
But after years of rehabilitation at Port Macquarie Koala Hospital he is fighting fit again and ready to resume his life in the bush.
Jimmy has become an online star. (All images Facebook)
