Turning 30 can often spark a change in life and for Patrick the wombat, it's no different.

Patrick has achieved a lot over his 30 years, including TV appearances, which have won him fans around the world. But there's one thing still missing... and that's true love. Yes, even the world's oldest wombat is on Tinder now.

The celebrity marsupial has a profile on the popular dating app where he is described as a "snaw" -- a sensitive, new-age wombat.

Patrick already has a large presence on social media -- with more than 30,000 followers on Facebook. He also has the local mayor in Australia attending his birthday party.
