3.3/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • Small place but well set up to take a walk through the place. Didn't mind paying for entry as this goes to help research and keep the park going 
  • It was so cool seeing so many Koalas in their natural surrounds. Lots of information about them to read as you walk around. Definitely recommend doing the little walk as well, saw a lot of wallabies. 
  • A good trip to take when you want to see plenty of Koalas in their natural environment and some wallabies moving around the enclosure.
