The admission is free, the information they provide is very informative, it is a real eye opener to see such injuries that can be inficted on our koalas. Watch out for Funnel Webs!

Only a small hospital but these injured koalas all have a story. No charge to go in but there is a little shop for souvenirs and you can leave a donation. Well worth a visit...It only takes less than an hour to go round.

This is an incredible place to visit! You can actually see inside the hospital whilst they are healping animals & see the other in a natural habitat whilst recovering. Make sure you donate to this worthy cause!
