I wasn't really sure this was going to be worth the effort but I was pleasantly surprised. You really do get to be very close to the Koalas, they were awake and moving and it was awesome to see.

We loved visiting the Koala Conservation Centre.
Amazing place full of informative displays about the koalas and with different walking tracks around the park.
We came up close with 4 koalas, with some of them giving a fighting display over gum leaves at feeding time. It was amazing to see them so close on the board walk!
These koalas are in their element in the park and are looked after in the most natural way possible.
Would recommend everyone to visit the koalas and learn a bit more about their habitat!

Nice overall experience. Not much to do other than walking and viewing koalas. Good for kids as the walks are short.

Our 1st stop in Phillip Island attractions, would recommend it as its easy to do. Even my usually picky kids had fun spotting koalas. Do note that they sleep a lot, you would probably only spot them curled up and napping.

There is 2 walkways which you can easily spot them and a longer walking path which we only found 1 curled up and napping of course.

Good place to visit
