Two Chinese pandas are going abroad on a historic voyage to Australia. The bamboo eating duo is expected to enjoy a very warm welcome in the Land Down Under.

Three year old Fu Ni and four-year old Wang Wang are not "Kong Fu Pandas," but both animals are extraordinary nonetheless. The tandem has been chosen to serve as China's ambassadors to the Adelaide Zoo.

On Friday, the pandas pairing boarded a plane bound for Australia. They will take up residence at their new home there for the next decade.

On the other side of the equator, everything has been put in place to make the two friends from afar feel right at home.

Fu Ni and Wang Wang's new abode was recreated in the style of their previous den in China. This ensures a familiar environment.

The relocation has sparked a craze even before their arrival.
