Koala Conservation Centre Tours

Koalas are iconic to the Australian experience, and the Koala Conservation Center gives visitors the chance to join them up in the trees. Walk through the treetops on wooden boardwalks to view koalas up close, and get eye-level vantage points you’d never experience if standing back on the ground. Koala bears sleep for about 20 hours each day, which means the chances of seeing them down from the ground is admittedly pretty slim. 

By joining the koalas in the trees, however, you’re close enough to see the rhythm of their chest as they leisurely nap in the trees. Or, watch the breeze as it blows through their whiskers and tickles their soft gray fur. If you happen to find some bears on the move, this is an authentic way to watch koalas as they eat and play in the wild. Once you’re firmly back on ground level, look for wallabies and brown echidnas on a stroll of the forested walking trails, and while visiting the Koala Conservation Center only takes an hour, it’s a quick, memorable, and accessible way to get wild on Phillip Island.  

Practical Info

The Koala Conservation Center opens at 10am daily, and closes between 5 and 6pm dependent upon time of year. Admission is $11.90 for adults, $5.95 for children, and you can combine tickets with the Penguin Parade and Churchill Island Heritage Farm for discounted admission.
