This is the tour you would like to have to experience up close and personal with the Koalas. You will find a lot of Koalas up in the tree and some of them in the ground. There is a 10m distance requirement to respect the wild Koalas. So definitely you will need a good camera.

We did the Koala Guided tour. It was an incredible value for money. Our guide showed us all the Koalas we meet on our way and the information about the animals was very interesting. Overall the whole experience was amazing and great.
