    The Koala Sanctuary has Koala's on display that may be sick or orphaned, so you ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CUDDLE THEM.
    The aim is to release these koalas back into the wild.
    Located inside, is a big colourful, floor-to-ceiling mural which depicts the koala’s 15 million-year history, and there are several interactive displays as well.

    A must do, is to climb the observation tower to look for koalas in the surrounding treetops.

    As well as the centre, there are a variety of walks that you can do, just pick up the Koala bushland park guide from the information centre and follow the coloured coded detailed walking trail map.
    On your walk, you may also see some Wallabies.

    There is a nice picnic area and Toilets set amongst the Gum Trees.

    This area is quite popular on weekends.

    This is a Koala sanctuary for recovering koala's.

    You cannot handle the animals or cuddle them, just observe them.

    This place is magic for somewhere so close in the city, and the is NO entrance fee.

    The Koala sanctuary is part of the Daisy Hill Conservation area run by the Queensland Government Dept of Environment and Resource Management.

    Well worth a visit.

    If you are coming, why not make it a day out and have a BBQ or picnic here, sites and BBQ facilities are provided. Daisy Hill Conservation Area
