Ever wanted to get up close or adopt a koala? The new $10M Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary is selling Wild Koalas at the Australian Tourism Exchange - not literally, but buyers can purchase a unique Koala Sanctuary Experience only found in Port Stephens, NSW.
The conservation and eco-tourism facility is purpose-built to care for sick, injured and orphaned Wild Koalas. It also provides visitors with a unique opportunity to see the marsupials in their natural habitat and learn about the Wild Koala population in Port Stephens. Take a look through the huge viewing window into the Koala Hospital and watch as veterinary staff carry out examinations and administer treatments to its Wild Koala inpatients.
Day visitors enjoy tailored tours from local guides, providing an immersive educational experience along the Sanctuary Story Walk, a 250 metre in length meandering pathway offering an immersive educational experience for all ages, telling the story of Koala and its habitat through artistic sculptural representations. The Newcastle Airport SKYwalk and viewing platform is a 225 metre in length elevated pathway and viewing platform, offering a unique 'tree top' perspective into the Koala's natural habitat.
Looking for a luxury getaway? Why not 'wake up' with Wild Koalas by spending a night or two in a Deluxe 4 star Glamping Tent! The Glamping Tents contain ensuites, lux fixtures and furnishings, the perfect place to rejuvenate while enjoying a unique nocturnal experience.
If glamping is not for you, there's a range of other accommodation — from Deluxe Studio Rooms to One Bedroom Deluxe Suites. These offer a more conventional stay, so you can experience the Koalas' natural setting while taking in the stunning views of the beautiful bushland environments.
A fantastic day out for children - and we all know how much they love the adorable Koala Buster Moon in Sing.
