Phillip Island Nature Parks - Koala Conservation Centre, Cowes

(3.4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
At the heart of Phillip Island Nature Park is Phillip Island Nature Parks - Koala Conservation Centre, where you can see wild koalas in their natural habitat, accessible by treetop boardwalks open to visitors. You can also talk to the park's rangers who look after the animals and are dedicated to their protection and conservation. Visitors to the center often choose to stroll through the bushland on the Woodland Boardwalk, but you can also choose from other viewing areas, including the Nobbies Center, from which you can spot seals, dolphins, and sharks. Koalas are considered placid nocturnal animals, but at this center you can see them and a variety of native birds resting in the eucalyptus trees during the day.

  • We went on school holiday. my kid love this place. Alway want to come back. Nice and clean venue. Recommended  more »
  • Peaceful walk close to nature, great gift shop with a lot to offer. Our patience was rewarded with a close & personal moment with one of the koalas. Not a zoo, nice concept.  more »
  • The kids loved getting up close to the Koalas... you can't touch or hold them though... but it was still a nice walk and small adventure... an hour was long enough and we saw at least 10 koalas.  more »
