Healesville Sanctuary

Koala Forest

Journey along the boardwalk through the Manna Gums of the Koala Forest exhibit at Healesville Sanctuary!

Healesville Sanctuary is celebrating Australia’s most iconic species - the koala. You can see more koalas than ever before in the new exhibit when you weave your way around the treetops and perch on platforms for the best views. We’ll also bust some of the famous myths about these carefree tree climbers!

Catch our daily Koala Keeper Talk and find out why koalas are the ultimate tree huggers of the world, as well as the action you can take to ensure that forests are in all of our futures.

Kids can learn how to climb like a koala and perfect their koala walk, as well as hear the local Wurundjeri Creation Story of Kuboroo the Koala, a local Indigenous tale that has been whispered through the Manna Gums from generation to generation.

Echidnas have also moved into their new home at Koala Forest so keep a look out for these spiny friends through the underground windows to see how many you can spot!
