Brisbane Koala Bushlands

Home > Brisbane > Walks | Nature | Outdoor
Published April 19th 2010
Take the time to slow down, relax and get back to nature, by paying a visit to the Brisbane Koala Bushlands.

This reserve covers over 800 hectares and protects 3000-5000 members of our cuddliest species.

Consisting of scattered eucalypts, heathland and rainforest, the Bushlands also houses wallabies, bandicoots and eastern water dragons, as well as an array of frogs and birds.

Most notably, though, it is an important koala conservation area. Indeed, it offers arguably the best chance for us to see koalas in the wild without having to leave the city.

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.
