Located just as you are approaching Cowes. Nice walk in a natural setting. Look carefully for the koalas - we found all of them, but they tend to do most of their napping during the middle of the day, so mostly you see sleeping balls of fur.

We visited as part of a tour and although our visit was short, it was informative and the sanctuary staff were on hand to discuss the Koalas and their circumstances, the were easy to view without disturbing them

I don't like "pet the wild animal" places. And I was afraid that this would be an experience like this. But this ended up to be a great place to watch koalas in thier natural habitat. Up close. Without the need to disturb them. Great work!

Good value, a walk around takes 1-2 hours including the nature trail. Only drawback - car noise. It is right aling the main highway - and traffic noise definitely detracts form the natural experience. I think some solid plantings along the perimeter are needed to soften or diffuse this noise.

We had fun coming there and watched the Koalas and Quokkas in their living habitat. We are not allowed to touch and scare the animals there as it is a conservatory. Quite sad that Eucalyptus trees are in scares and its the only diet for the Koalas.

This is a great experience for all the family, to see the Koalas in their own habitat & to learn more about them, and even better all the funds go to support the conservation of the Koalas.....

It was better than I expected as I only expected 1 koala or maybe even none. Information about koalas were also included.

This was a free walk held during the school holidays in the Conservation Centre. It was a fabulous experience for our granddaughters 10,8 & 5. The ranger was excellent ensuring that his information was delivered in an interesting and easily understood manner. Our girls excitedly participated in spotting the koalas and possums, were able to ask lots of questions and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. We were amazed to learn that there are now only 23 koalas in the park and also of the dedicated work being undertaken to ensure their survival. look our for this a similar activities held during school holidays in the conservation reserves on Phillip Island.

Saw lots of Koalas close-up but was amazed at all the birds in the near by swamp which you can see from the boardwalk and also those in the forest along the trails. Saw about 20 types of birds in 1 hour.

Also saw kangaroos and wallabies.

Get a package deal if doing the penguin parade.

I would definitely go back.
