A South Australian woman found herself in an unusual high speed car chase when a koala bear chased after her as she rode away on a quad bike.

Ebony Churchill recorded the apparently fearless marsupial as it tried to keep pace with the bike and posted it to her Facebook page.

When she stopped the koala was then filmed trying to climb up onto of the wheels.

Ms Churchill can be heard in the video exclaiming: “Far out, it's coming! Get away!”

She said the animal clung onto the wheel of the bike for several minutes before wandering off.

The video has now been viewed over 600,000 times.
