Gurtie is one of the animals in the Noah's island who live on The Island.

Gurtie is another gorilla who is saved by Noah and the Problem Walrus from a plane that crashes on a reef off-shore from the island.

Gurtie has what seems to be a Northern English accent and is quite a fountain of knowledge on the island which she usually has obtained from her "telly" in the zoo. By the end of the show's airing she has become Rocco's mate and they have a daughter together. Gurtie and Woomera do not often see eye to eye.
