Koalas Devastated by Fires

Fires south of Port Macquarie have recently devastated bushland which has a high number of breeding koalas in the area; one of the most genetically diverse groups in Australia and is of enormous national significance.

Adopt a Wild Koala

What could be better as a last minute gift for your family or friends than an adoption of a new favourite – Lion Leo?  He has amazing, beautiful blue eyes.

Visit a Koala

Enjoy a guided tour at the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. Our experienced guides will explain how koalas are brought into our care, issues they encounter, as well as provide important information in the conservation of our koala populations.

The first koala to be treated

The first koala to be treated following the devastating bush fires at Lake Innes, south of Port Macquarie arrived at the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital on Saturday.
