The Body and the wombat

IT'S not often you see a supermodel cuddling a baby wombat.

But that's exactly what happened at the Macadamia Castle yesterday when Elle Macpherson called in to the Knockrow tourist attraction with her family.

This picture - taken from castle owner Tony Gilding's Facebook page - shows the model getting to know the newest resident at the Macadamia Castle, wombat Diesel.

Mr Gilding said the Macpherson clan - including sister Mimi, their dad and Elle's children - spent a few hours at the castle.

"Elle is very down-to-earth and just a lovely person," he said.

"And, of course, she looks absolutely gorgeous."
