We spent just about 1 hour there - all needed. Koala habit walk on elevated platform was good in both enclosures. The information displays were great too Would be nice to see wombats too and for someone to solve the Chlamydia problem with the Koalas...More

Rangers/staff were helpful. The place is well sign posted & could take a pram/wheelchair. It’s not huge & only took about an hour with a fast paced toddler. There were lots of mozzies about so beware! Koalas were wonderful to see.

We stopped here by chance , we had been to the Penguin Parade the day before, would highly recommend the Conservation Centre as part of your trip to Phillip Island. The Koalas are the obvious draw here and they do not disappoint; living in a...More

I’m not really a fan of zoos or sanctuaries because they’re normally very unnatural. However, I loved the conservation centre. It’s as close as the koalas can get to being in the wild. It’s easy to see them even if they’re high in the trees....More

If you have interest in understanding life cycle of Koala, then this is the place. It was an excellent tour and we really enjoyed considering presence of other species in this conservation centre.

Lovely spot with informative displays inside and out. We had free tickets for this through flybuys. Easy to see the koalas in the artificial walkways that were well made. Glad I didn’t pay full price though.

This is an inexpensive way of seeing lots of Koala’s. We were very close on several occasions. I think time of day is a guide to activity, we were there about 1pm.

Thank you for visiting the Koala Conservation Centre. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience. Koalas here are free to enjoy the treetops and not kept in cages so at times they can be close or far away.

3 walkways are being created for visitors to ‘spot the total number of koalas’ in the specific walkway. I skipped the Woodlands walkway cos the proximity to the koalas at the other two walkways are sufficient. I leant to be Contented! :)

You can buy tickets at the counter. However if you buy 3 parks pass which includes Koala Conservation Sanctuary, Penguin Parade and Churchill Island you will save some $s as it is cheaper to buy them together.
