Koalas are under serious threat in south east Queensland. On our 12,000 acres at Spicers Hidden Vale we have a thriving koala population covering much of the property. Led by Dr Andrew Tribe the Hidden Vale Wildlife Centre is currently conducting a 12-month koala research program and you have the opportunity to contribute.
The safari starts with a tour of the wildlife centre before moving to the first koala hotspot, from here you will assist researchers in locating and checking the welfare of the koala community. We are tracking 26 koalas at present and expect to be seeing joeys soon.
You will learn interesting facts about koalas, the habitat and how we are trying 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. You’ll need to book well in advance as numbers are strictly limited.
After your 2 hour expedition a cold beverage will be waiting for you by the campfire, to extend your experience, enjoy lunch at Homage before joining the tour.
The cost is $75 per person with 75% of the cost going towards the wildlife centre’s research projects. Operating on a Tuesday and Friday departing at 2.30pm
Bookings are essential, contact reception to book.
