Definitely not a bear
Built as a dedicated koala education facility, the Daisy Hill Koala Centre features a large outdoor koala enclosure and many interactive displays. Set in 435 hectares of Daisy Hill Eucalypt Forest it is a great place for a day out.

You can climb the observation tower to get a koala's eye view of the world—you might even spot a wild koala! Inside you can see koalas close up, but you are not allowed to pat them. While this may be disappointing it done in the best interests of the koalas.

Within the Centre there are films about koalas and other threatened species in the midnight woodland theatre. Learn about the koala's life cycle and unique biology and how to know the signs and symptoms of a sick or injured koala. You will also learn how to keep koalas safe in your backyard.
