There could be few more authentic Aussie experiences than observing Phascolarctos cinereus in its natural habitat. Whether they're climbing trees, munching on gum leaves or – most likely – so fast asleep they appear to be comatose, koalas are the most impossibly cute of creatures. You'll have to resist the urge to reach out and hug them – take a photo instead.
The visitors' area contains electric barbeques, shelters, toilets and interpretive displays. It's also the starting point for a series of walks.
Do yourself a favour and visit the Brisbane Koala Bushlands sooner rather than later.
