Visited with my 6 year old son. It was extremely interesting to see how the injured Koala's are being cared for and the threats to their environment. Interesting display of their life cycles and health issues. A very educational visit.

Worth the stop in Port Macquarie. Admission is by donation - they are well worth supporting because they do a great job helping these beautiful animals. The write ups about each of the koalas who cannot be released back to the wild will make the...More

Cool place to visit and to support the wounded koalas. The stories are a little bit sad, but you can see the injured guys climbing up trees. Worth the stop

Half a day is more than enough - the tours only happen at 3pm so we got there at 2.30 and left at around 4.30.
