What’s cuter than Chris Hemsworth? How about Chris Hemsworth snuggling up to one of Rottnest Island’s adorable local marsupials, the quokka.

The Hollywood star took plenty of #quokkaselfies over the weekend as he and his family holidayed on the stunning Western Australian island to experience its brand new glamping destination Discovery – Rottnest Island.

The accommodation opened just two weeks ago and Chris Hemsworth was among the first guests to experience the 83-tent resort, staying in a Superior Family tent.

Complete with king-sized bed, bunk bed annexe, ensuite, kitchenette and private deck, the tents are a great base for family holidays.

Discovery – Rottnest Island General Manager Andy Cleverley said that it had been a star-studded opening for the resort with visits from both Sir Bob Geldof and Chris Hemsworth in the past week.

“Just two weeks from opening, it was a huge privilege to host Chris, Elsa and the kids at the resort,” he said.

“The Hemsworth family were able to soak up the sand and sun from one of the most spectacular coastal locations in WA – Pinky Beach.”

Now to those heart-meltingly cute quokka selfies.

In recent years the quokka has become a social media star, thanks partly to some famous friends capturing their own #quokkaselfie, including Hugh Jackman, Roger Federer, Margot Robbie and now Chris Hemsworth.

He posted the selfie on his Instagram along with the caption: “Got my first quokka selfie this week at @rottnestislandwa. Epic little creatures are all over the island just cruisin through the day doin their thing. Get there and check it out!”
