Hidden Vale Koala Safari
Koalas are under serious threat in south east Queensland. On our 12,000 acres 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.
Currently operating on a Tuesday and Friday departing at 2.30pm you will join a team of researchers on their weekly monitoring activities. We are tracking 26 koalas at present and expect to be seeing joeys soon. The safari starts with a tour of the wildlife centre before moving to the first koala hot spot, from here you will assist researchers in locating and checking the welfare of the koala community.
You will learn interesting facts about koalas, our 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.
Start your weekend with lunch at Homage before joining the tour, 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. The cost is $75 per person with 75% of the cost going towards the wildlife centre’s research projects.
Bookings are essential, contact reception to book.
