Make a Wombat Challenge


The Knit or Sew a Wombat challenge is a major fundraiser to raise money for The Wombat Foundation – the only organisation dedicated solely to conservation of the Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat.

Makers and artists have been invited to knit, sew or crochet a wombat – send it to us and we will sell or auction it as part of the festival.

Please include a note with your name in the package – and we would love you to name your wombat as well.  Each wombat will be tagged by our team, with the name of the maker and wombat attached.

Please share a photo of your wombat on our Wombat Festival Facebook page.

All proceeds donated to The Wombat Foundation to help save the critically endangered Warru - Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat

Completed wombats can be posted to:


Please remember to name your wombat - and include your name on a note so we can tag them appropriately.
