“A worthwhile initiative and a nice experience”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

An entirely volunteer basis / donation basis. Some great information and demonstrations regarding the rehabilitation process for sick and injured koalas. The facility itself is located in a stress-free environment and it's a great opportunity to see some beautiful native creatures.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Free facility near flynns beach. Staff work on a volunteering basis so only donation is needed. Saw some lovely (poorly and recovering) koalas. Kids loved it.

“Heart warming!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

An adorable place to visit if you love koalas. Amazing care and rehabilitation given to these animals. We spent a few hours there just taking photos and listening to the tour. Made my day. A definite place to visit. Really blown away by all the volunteers work, well done.

“Must see in Port Macquarie”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Somebody had to do it! Port Macquarie is capturing the Koala brand and this unique nature facility with its focus on injured fauna is a beauty.

“Visiting Koala Hospital”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Although it was raining that day, but we made it to the Koala Hospital. Must appreciate the efforts of the staff looking after some pretty vulnerable Koalas. The visit was informative as the staff members talk us (all the visitors) through different aspects of Koalas' welfare. We were lucky to witness Koalas' feeding time. It was heartening to see the kindness and care of the staff members while feeding the Koalas. There is also a visitors shop and one can buy all sorts of souvenirs from there. Overall we all enjoyed visiting the place. Good learning exp for self and kids.
