Koalas are under serious threat in south east Queensland however Hidden Vale is home to a healthy population that love to doze in the treetops during the day, making them quite difficult to spot. Unless you know where to look!
Guests of Spicers Hidden Vale can join our researchers on an authentic ‘koala safari’. Starting with a tour of the Wildlife Centre, we then take you ‘out bush’ using electronic tracking to quickly locate koalas in their natural environment. You are bound to see a few as we are tracking over 30 koalas at present. You may be lucky enough to see a joey or two!
Along the way we will share interesting facts about koalas, the habitat and how we are working to build the population with hopes of reintroducing koalas to specific areas across the region. This genuine eco experience is truly unique and not to be missed.
The cost is $129 per person with 85% going towards the wildlife centre’s research projects. Tours depart at 9:00am and are subject to availability. Bookings are essential.
