Phillip Island

Koala Conservation Reserve


Come face-to-face with koalas in their natural habitat along the treetop boardwalks through the Australian bushland at the Koala Reserve.

The two elevated boardwalks bring you closer to the koalas as they go about their daily business of sleeping, eating, and sleeping some more. Look for the clues at the base of trees and listen for the laugh of kookaburras while you soak up the scent of eucalyptus.

Wander the extensive trails through the natural Australian bushland and enjoy the abundant birdlife. The woodland is home to many animals including wallabies, echidnas and bats. Learn about the life of the koalas and their history on the island in the interpretative centre.

Located only 90 minutes from Melbourne, the Koala Reserve offers fantastic koala viewing in their natural habitat.
