Today Channel Seven's Sunrise introduced our mascot for the 2018 Commonwealth Games which will take place here on the Gold Coast. Borobi the blue koala arrived on Burleigh Beach by helicopter in front of a crowd of hundreds. Borobi's key features include his blue fur and coloured ears, crimson nose, sunscreen, indigenous markings on hands and feet, and one thumb on each paw.
Borobi - the Yugembah language name for koala - is a great mascot. He's a surfing koala with his boards on and his sunscreen, it's also a great Queensland symbol - the koala is the fauna symbol of Queensland.
Today also marks two years until the games open.
