Meet our Wapuu “Wapoolaba”

It can’t be denied that one of the cultural cornerstones of WordCamps world over are the Wapuu’s. If you don’t know what a Wapuu is…

A Wapuu is the official unofficial mascot for WordCamps. The original was designed for a WordCamp in Japan and since then, almost every WordCamp has had their own. The general character is the same, with each WordCamp adding their own style to match the region.

So for WordCamp Sunshine Coast, what else could we do but sit this little guy down by the beach.

Meet Wapoolaba, the Wapuu for Wordcamp Sunshine Coast.


Why the name Wapoolaba? Let’s see if you can figure that one out yourself. 🙂
