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
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.
