What a great way to spot koalas!! There were a few koalas near the parking but go up by car if you want to spot more koalas without any crowds. We had so much fun and felt like we were on a safari. We also did a small forest walk at the end of the road near a picknick area.

Follow the uphill track from Kafe Koala and there are often koala in the trees. They are tricky to spot, as they are not very active and I had a couple pointed out to me. I got some excellent photos on my phone. There were also a very noisy flock of parrots, perched on low hanging branches, hoping for food. I would definitely recommend stopping here to catch a glimpse of koala in the wild. Seeing koala so close and in the wild, both here and in Hordern Vale, made my day.

We weren't very adventurous, stopping in the car park by Kafe Koala, just off the Great Ocean Road, and walking just a short distance up the dirt road beside the cafe. There were lots of parrots in the trees and we were lucky enough to see a Koala nearby too. You do need some serious patience and wildlife spotting skills, because the Koala are well camouflaged and in our case distant, and had another couple not spotted it first and made us aware I doubt we would have noticed. Photography can be a challenge too, because a digital zoom on a phone is unlikely to be up to the job. Even an optical zoom on a camera needs a very steady hand or friendly shoulder to balance on. But for all that, we were glad we stopped. There are some decent port a loos on the way back to the car park, just by the cafe.

There is a small cafe near the Kennet river and the Great Ocean Road. Nearby were two Koala's in separate trees. They were pretty soporific but still magical to see in the wild after seeing many in the various zoos.
