The inquisitive creature was captured clambering down a tree and calmly crawling over the beach to the shoreline

One of Australia's most iconic animals sought a change of scenery from it's usual leafy gumtree hideout, taking a casual stroll along the sandy beaches of Queensland's Magnetic Island.

One curious koala was spotted by a surprised tourist clambering down from a tree and exploring the shoreline of the island.

The footage shows the inquisitive creature as it caught some ocean views, calmly edging it's way to the water before stopping to look at the waves lapping the sand, seemingly transfixed by the motion.

The koala appeared to be in no hurry to leave, and was not startled by the audience it has gathered who were watching it's antics.

Trent Cowan, 30, works at the island's backpacker accommodation and said that reports of koalas wandering down onto the beach, or even through the bar where he serves, is quite commonplace on the island.
