Kai the Sumatran-Siberian tiger is about to be reunited with his sister at the Ballarat Wildlife Park.

Akasha (pronouced Ak-ar-sha) will soon make the trip south from Dreamworld on the Gold Coast.

The parks curator Julia Leonard says the colder climate won’t be a problem.

“She’ll live next door to Kai, she’s a Sumatran-Siberian cross.”

“Even though she’s coming from Dreamworld she’s got a nice big fluffy coat and we of course have heated dens for them,” Ms. Leonard said.

Akasha is expected to arrive in Ballarat late this month.
