Koala Hospital reviews
We visited around 9.30am and the koalas were quite active - finalising their breakfast, I think! There is lots of information and the team of volunteers are very knowledgeable.

It was the best experience I have ever had with these beautiful, adorable little marsupials. I love the work the hospital and it's team of volunteers have been doing. It is a place to visit especially for animal lovers. I can proudly say that I have also adopted one of the beautiful Koala's. And I would encourage other's to do the same.
The lady giving us the low down on Koala behaviour was awesome, also telling us about each individual Koala and why they were there. She was very enthusiastic, you can tell she loves her job. Highly recommended!
I just like koalas.
Everyone visiting Port Macquarie should stop here. It is great to know a little bit more about koalas and see the amazing job the volunteers do with them. A donation is appreciated after you have seen the installations, that way they can keep going with their awesome contribution. Shout out to Fernanda, the volunteer that greeted us and let us know about the koalas who they were taking care of at that moment.
One of a kind experience! I seriously can't recommend it enough, the staff are absolutely lovely and everything I saw exceeded my expectations. The efforts of the volunteers are above and beyond, keep up your fantastic work!!♥️
