“Be sincere in helping the Koala”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

i am impressed with their mission and wants to contribute to saving the Koalas. As a tourist, it is a venue to visit if you truly want to support the organisation. Otherwise, it is rather hard to spot the Koalas and not much for a 'sightseeing' trip.

“Watch Koalas in their natural habitat”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This sanctuary has many walks in the Eucalyptus forest. You can see young and old koalas here, mostly sleeping high up on the trees. We saw around 6 of them. one was very close to the ground and we got a nice photo of my daughter. Having said that as some of the previous reviewers have mentioned its not worth spending $28. A better option is get the 3 park pass for around $60, and you can see Koalas, seals and the penguin parade too.

“What koalas?”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Totally agree with the work being done here but we paid $28 for the family to get in. We were really excited to see all the koalas only to find 2 koalas. Seriously people give a donation but don't waste your time...

“Sleepy Koalas”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

The place was good and there were people on site to answer questions, but the Koalas weren't in any mood to show off. Wrong tome of day I guess. Their info centre had lots to take in about the Koalas and the area, but I wanted more. Still I hope they keep up the good work.

“Where are the Koalas”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

I am glad I did not pay top $$ I think we saw 4 Koalas on the day we were there, not sure where they all were. I expected to see a lot more than that, maybe my expectations were too high.
