  • Could I give it 6 stars ? Only because it is such a wonderful place to go. Not full of gimmicks or animals doing tricks. Just full of lovely, safe happy Koalas. And full of lovely, friendly and dedicated staff. Mostly volunteers I believe. The stories are heartbreaking but the results heart warming. The staff are so friendly and clearly they love the bears so much. Thank you for your care and loving attention. We loved our visit. Such good work being done for those dear animals.
  • A great place with a very good initiative. Our little one enjoyed her time watching Koalas and we had a nice information session about Koala welfare. It was worth spending in the shop and donating for the cause. Definitely recommend a visit to this place.
