Koala Hospital Reviews (7)

A must see

2 years ago
The Koala Hospital is such an interesting place to visit. You can see the structure where they check injured koalas and the permanet koala residents that cannot go back to the wild. They also have a big areas of koalas you cannot see cause they are in rehabilitation. At 3pm they offer a free tour and give you info about koala and how they take care about koalas. Very interesting. You can also adopt a koala which i think is very helpful for these passionate people that help koalas for free. It is a great learning experience and eye opener into rehabilitation for koalas. A must see

definately worth the visit

The initiative at the Koala Hospital is just great. I think people forget that koalas do get hurt and sick, so they do need to be taken care of. Koala hospital cures the injured animals and sets them free again ( if that allows their medical condition). We loved to see those beautiful creatures recovering from a very close distance. Support koala hospital with a donation! Definately worth a visit when in the area and a donation always helps also.

The Koala Hospital is worth a visit. They also rely on donations so please please Donate to help these saints of volunteers who care for these iconic creatures. I recommend the 3pm informative talk and tour and feed the Koalas. The gift shop was very worth the visit. Walked away with several great T Shirts This Hospital is a must on visitors itinerary.

volunteers were so kind

2 years ago
We went to the Koala Hospital at 3pm and there was a guided tour and we were lucky enough to see the koalas being fed. The volunteers were so kind and told us all the back stories of each koala in the hospital. They also told us about how to keep the koalas safe especially on the roads. Such a great outing and so glad we went to experience this

The Koala Hospital is a wonderful little place. You can get up close to the Koala's. The staff were great. Great for the kids to learn as well which is always an added bonus.

koalas are adorable

3 years ago
I love the Koala Hospital as I get to see lots of cuddly koalas up close. Most are sick but still adorable to look at. Good visitor info, small gift shop and a 1min walk to historic Roto House. Great outing for tourists and locals

highly recommend visiting

We went to visit the Koala Hospital on the 2.1.2017 . We did a tour and whilst on the tour we discovered there was a koala named ' Ocean Summer ' My grandaughters name is Summer so we decided to adopt the beautiful Ocean Summer. $50 a year is nothing even close to the medicine and food required to care for her. The lovely staff are all volunteers and so compassionate and caring. We highly recommend visiting and if possible adopting a koala to help with the financial burden to rescue and care for the injured koalas that sadly cannot be released due to permanent injuries. Such an eye opening outing

About Koala Hospital

Koala Conservation Australia Inc, trading as The Koala Hospital, is a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation facility that specialises in caring for orphaned and injured koalas. Our aim is to rescue, rehabilitate and release koalas back to their home range if possible. The Koala Hospital is also a scientific research and education centre and a popular tourist attraction.

The Koala Hospital is situated in the grounds of the Macquarie Nature Reserve in Lord Street, Port Macquarie, New South Wales, Australia. We have a 24 hour rescue line so if you see an injured or distressed koala please call us on 6584 1522.

Between 200 and 250 koalas are admitted through the Hospital every year. Apart from Chlamydia, motor vehicle accidents and dog attacks are the most common cause of injuries sustained.

The Koala Hospital consists of a treatment room, 8 Intensive Care Units, 6 outdoor intensive care units and 33 rehabilitation yards, many of which have trees for koalas to learn to climb as part of the rehabilitation process. Koalas in the rehabilitation yards and intensive care units are not visible to the public.

The Hospital is open every day (except Christmas Day) and visitors are welcome at any time between 8.00 am and 4.30 pm. A free guided tour is conducted every afternoon at 3.00 pm. This guided tour takes visitors around the exhibition yards where a volunteer tour guide gives an informative talk explaining why each koala patient has come into the hospital, the treatment and the outcome for the koala.

A brief explanation of basic koala biology is also covered by the volunteer guide who is always available to answer questions. While the tour is in progress other volunteers within the yards are feeding the koalas. All of this is easily visible by the visitor and most of the outside exhibition yards are wheelchair accessible.

We rely heavily on funds raised through our Adopt A Wild Koala Program; donations; bequests and fund-raising activities.
