Busselton enjoyed a visit from a very special West Aussie last week, in time for Telethon 2019.

Children’s favourite Fat Cat toured the South West to promote his new colouring books.

As part of the fundraising effort for Telethon, the new colouring and activity books give children a fun way to learn about WA’s favourite tourist destinations.

During his tour to raise awareness of Telethon, Fat Cat visited a number of well-known destinations in the region including the Busselton Jetty and Cowaramup’s fibreglass cows.

There were more than a few “cat up a tree” jokes when he also (sort of) scaled the South West’s famous Gloucester Tree.

There are two colouring books to choose from and they cost $3 each. All proceeds from the sale of the books go towards Telethon.

The book project is supported by RAC Parks and Resorts and Puma Energy.

West Australians have raised more than $306 million through Telethon for WA children since 1968.
