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 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 will be available from the Koala Hospital in Macquarie Nature Reserve, Lord Street, Port Macquarie.

The giveaway starts 1st April, 2021. If you require no more than 20 trees you may simply call into the Koala Hospital between 10am and 2pm, Monday to Saturday and collect them. If you need larger quantities please complete the form below to order them.

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