Overhanging large ghost gums form a protective cover for the wombat, who like to burrow into the softer soil over winter and venture out to nibble on the new grass. A short, stocky, barrel-shaped animal , the wombat has a broad head with small eyes, powerful shoulders and a very small tail. The trees have been made to feel alive as they are part of the protection of the wombat.
