Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary is selling Wild Koalas

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.

A partnership between Port Stephens Council, the NSW Government and volunteer care group Port Stephens Koala Hospital, is focused on sustaining and protecting the threatened species for years to come.

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.

The Sanctuary will offer unique experiences with Wild Koalas in a natural and idyllic bushland setting. The immersive educational Sanctuary Story Walk, Fat Possum café and deluxe 4-star guest glamping accommodation, also provides an incredibly exciting addition to the Port Stephens' tourism offering.

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.

Glamping Accommodation

Deluxe Suites

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.

The Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary is open daily from 9am – 5pm (except Christmas Day).
