“Put this on your must do list!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

The Koala Hospital is predominantly volunteer run and provides quite a unique service for our iconic Koala.
There are several koala enclosures and koala spotting is a great sport for young and old! Information pamphlets are available in several languages which will be useful to overseas visitors.
The tour is interesting and informative and is free but a donation box is available for you to make a contribution.
Also visit Roto House - the hospital has been established on the grounds of Roto House which was built by the Flynn family (Flynn's Beach) in the late 1800's. The home has now been restored by National Parks and Wildlife and is open for inspection daily until 4pm. Volunteers will take you through the history of the home and the family. Again a gold coin donation would be appreicated.

“A highlight in Port Macquarie”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

To see koalas up close and being treated and hopefully cured, with compassion is a must see. Volunteer staff are friendly and knowledgable and the enclosures are easy to access. Great to see so many overseas visitors there as well.

“Wonderful way for the children to see a koala”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Took my little grandson to see the koala's he was so excited when one was in a tree so close to us ,free entry but there is a donation collection box , great to see the koalas in their own trees, reading the background of why they are at the Koala hospital makes you realise how we are endangering the wildlife with cars , many were hit by cars ,or found on the side of the road ,or affected by bushfires.
