All Holiday Holiday guests and visitors are welcomed to come past, say hello, take a selfie, and give a hug to the lovable mascot at the Borobi 2018 Commonwealth Games Mascot meet and greet event.
Borobi, means koala, in the language of the Gold Coast Yugambeh people. Borobi is Australia’s first surfing koala, inspired by a drawing created by Brisbane school teacher Merrilyn Krohn, the winner of the GC2018 Mascot Design Competition.
The blue koala, Borobi, in his vibrant yellow board shorts, will visit the Surfers Paradise urban hub from 11am to 1pm, meeting and greeting shoppers, taking photos and making new friends.
