Koalas are a threatened species in south-east Queensland. The Daisy Hill Koala Centre, situated in the midst of a conservation park, is a great way to see them in their natural habitat and learn about how to protect them.
The Daisy Hill Koala Centre also cares for local koalas that have been injured by dogs or cars. Many people don't realise how vulnerable koalas in our region actually are and that their numbers are declining as development increases.
The centre highlights the importance of protecting koalas and has free interactive displays where you can find lots of information about how and where they live. If you still want to know more, you can talk with a ranger, or take part in a guided Connect With Nature activity.
The Daisy Hill Conservation Park also features five walks through open woodland ranging from an easy 400m stroll to a 9km circuit, which includes the neighbouring Neville Lawrie Reserve.
Along the way you can look for koalas as well as possums, wallabies and a host of birds and reptiles. Mountain biking and horse riding are also permitted on some trails.
You can even enjoy a picnic while you're there. Picnic facilities are located in two open grassy areas and have wood BBQs, tables and toilets.
I used to go to this place all the time when I was little with my famly and also with our school I think we went a few times. It is probably the largest running area for children, from what I remember because I have not been there in maybe 10 years. Me and my brother used to go crazy like monkeys in a cage running around and going on the search to find things and sometimes we used to just relax and look at the cute koalas they had. They were so peaceful and the whole experience was very nice being surrounded by nature and everything is fresh and green.
