The Ballarat Wildlife Park has uncovered its very own golden nugget.

The park has welcomed a baby southern hairy nosed wombat named Honey Bun.

General manager Julia Leonard says its unusual golden colour is making headlines around the world.

"I've had heaps of interest in her, the Woman's Weekly asked for pictures and her instagram page got 700 followers in two days," she said.
