Four koalas got the rock star treatment ahead of their new life in Singapore.

Australia is giving the koalas as gifts to the Singapore Zoo to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the country's independence.

Qantas Airline treated the animals to first class amenities Sunday, complete with top-shelf eucalyptus, fresh gum leaves, hot towels and extra leg room.

The little travelers will be transported in the plane's cargo hold on Monday.
