Koala Park Sanctuary

Koala Park Sanctuary is a native garden and a bush land spreading across 10 acres of lands. It takes just 30 minutes to reach the sanctuary from Sydney. In 1920, Koala fur was promptly been used for export and commercial purpose. That time, Noel Burnet realized that human avarice for money may force this gentle species to extinction. Out of this concern to preserve the species, he spent his whole life fighting to protect research and create a safe environment in which Koalas could live and breed naturally.

The Koala Park Sanctuary Research Hospital was opened in 1930 and was the first Koala research hospital in Australia. A new Koala hospital is also being constructed. This sanctuary has grooves of eucalyptus trees in the native gardens. This place allows visitors to cuddle a koala bear, feed him and click memorable snaps. The park also educates the guest about the bears.

Apart from the koalas, the sanctuary has Wedge-tailed eagle, Little Penguins, Wombats, Red Kangaroos, Emus, several species of wallabies, Echidnas, Dingoes, Grey Kangaroos and other Australian native bird species.

Moreover, wombat show and a penguin show are displayed during the day and tourist can even feed kangaroos too, with their hands. To experience an outback station stock camp, you can go in for the Stockmanís Camp. The camp gives you a streak of sheep shearing; it displays sheep dogs and has boomerang demonstrations.

The park which was built for preservation purpose has turned out to be a family and sightseer place where one can embrace nature and understand the essence of our environment.
