Diesel the wombat passes away

WITH sad hearts the Macadamia Castle has announced the overnight loss of their "cuddliest friend" Diesel the wombat.

Diesel had been with the Macadamia Castle since 2011, and was famously pictured just a few months later snuggling up to 'The Body' Elle Macpherson on a family outing to Knockrow.

The Castle's furry friend passed away on Monday night, the Knockrow recreation park said in a statement. 

"He was a big part of our family here and will be sadly missed. We would like to dedicate this day, the 31st of
December as our Diesel remembrance day in the park, as his cute and cuddly personality touched so many," the statement said.

"We miss you already Diesel, but you will always be in our hearts. We promise to continue to help all wombats by
enlightening our visitors of the little champion you were, and the need to care for our wild wombats around
Australia."
