The story of Waratah Wazza the Koala 

“Once there was a Koala called Warrick and he was heaps good at flowers and when he grew up he opened up his own florist called Wazza’s Waratahs and all he sold was waratah flowers because they were his favourite kind of flower because one day when he was a little koala dude he was heaps high up in his eucalyptus tree munching on eucalyptus leaves when a big gust of wind came along and he lost his grip and fell out and was hurtling towards earth towards certain death when he landed in a waratah tree which saved his life. From then on in he was all about the waratah and opening a waratah only flower shop was a natural progression. The End.” Mulga
