Easy to find on the main Cowes road. Well signed.

If you like cute koalas, then this is the place for you. There are plenty of them about, though as always, you might have to be patient and search for them. There are a number of walkways in the trees, which gets you right in amongst them. We saw quite a few close up. they are not the most active of creatures, so often they are snoozing, but we were able to see a few moving about and close up.

Another great little attraction on the island. A lovely walk through the bush and fantastic areas to view the koalas in their own little homes.

If you want to see some koalas while in Australia, this is the place to be. Not only that, your money contributes directly to their care by the centre. Well looked after, cuddly and cute. Definitely worth a visit!

Loved the fact that you can get quite close to them on the broadwalk. Didn't get enough time as it was part of a tour, would loved to have spent more time there.

While it is unfortunate that wild animals require this care, the centre provides excellent service. The animals are well cared for-given space, food and medical supervision. It is a joy to be able to view these unique creatures in fairly close quarters without feeling as though you are alarming them. Kudos to the staff for their stellar care!
