Koala Food Tree Giveaway

Koala Food Tree Giveaway
The Port Macquarie Koala Hospital’s annual koala food tree giveaway is on again!

Following the devastating bush fires that swept up and down the east coast of Australian in 2019-2020, helping regenerate burnt bushland has become a priority for the Koala Hospital.

This year’s program, a joint initiative between the Koala Hospital and the Forestry Corporation of NSW, offers four different species to suit different soil and habitat locations: tallowwood, grey gum, forest red gum and swamp mahogany. Trees will be available from the Koala Hospital in Roto House Historic Site, Lord Street, Port Macquarie.

The giveaway starts on 28th March, 2022 between 10am and 2pm, Monday to Saturday and will continue until the supply of trees is exhausted. Please complete the form below to order the trees you require.

Here are three planting guides you may download and/or print:
