Located right in Port this is a special place to visit but extra special for overseas tourists. The staff are passionate and caring and enjoy interacting with visitors. The cost is a voluntary donation.

An amazing up close and personal experience! The work of the volunteers will bring a tear to the eye and a smile to all faces. John Williams wrote a song over 20 years ago about our hospital and it's special patients! We are so lucky to have this unique place! Come one! Come all!

It was amazing to see how much all of them are cared for and there is a care board that shows the progress of the different koalas.

Very interesting and good to see that somebody care for these beautiful animals. The hospital is next door to Roto House, an old (by Australin standards) merchants house worth a visit.

If they had more funding then yes of course there would be more bells and whistles for everyone to gawp at so go and make a donation/buy a postcard but remember, it is a koala hospital,... More

Chucking it down with rain didn't stop us visiting the hospital. Free but donations are expected and when you see what they do for the koalas, it is not grudged. Very knowledgeable guides, all volunteers who are passionate about the koalas. Loved this as you get to see the koalas in a natural environment. No handling though, but now that... More
