Part of the reason for this place is so you can learn more about the koala habitat, not solely to spot and take photos of koalas. They do a great job there. Staff seem like they are really trying to help the little animals flourish...More

While not fully out in the wild, these Koala and other animals are in a nature preserve meant to protect them from predators (especially automobiles) and yet allow them to be natural. It was quite cool to be able to get close enough to observe...More

The elevated walkways enabled visitors to get really good views of a number of koalas in a natural habitat. The other paths around the park provided a relaxed walk with a range of birds and butterflies visible.

Our 2nd koala encounter in Philip Island this time in their natural habitat - a eucalypt woodland. Spot a koala in their sleeping quarters. You might want to learn more of them in the visitor interpretation center including how they mate.

Really nice to see a place so interested in conservation and not just making money. They really are not for profit and do really care. Good on them.

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.
