These cute, lazy marsupial mammals almost sleeps all day. They can only live in the woodland particularly in trees and feed themselves by eating the leaves of the eucalyptus. At the Koala Conservation Center, there is an interesting story by the indigenous people of Phillip...More

You can buy tickets at the counter. However if you buy 3 parks pass which includes Koala Conservation Sanctuary, Penguin Parade and Churchill Island you will save some $s as it is cheaper to buy them together.
