Very informative. We went in time for the 3pm guided tour. Well worth it! There is also a viewing station for visitors to watch as they assess and treat injured koalas. This usually occurs in the morning.

This place is amazing, if you don't know much about Koalas beforehand you will love them afterwards. The people who work and volunteer there are truly amazing.

The koala hospital is manned by volunteers. It is a lovely friendly place to visit at feeding time and to hear about the wonderful work, see koalas up close and learn more about them

Half a day is more than enough - the tours only happen at 3pm so we got there at 2.30 and left at around 4.30.
