Did you know?

  • The Koala Conservation Centre is home to more than koalas - look for wallabies, echidnas and enjoy the calls of the native birds or relax on the deck of the cafe.

  • Koalas sleep an average 20 hours per day thanks to their low energy diet of eucalyptus leaves.

  • The Koala Conservation Centre provides a safe habitat for nearly half of Phillip Island's remaining koalas. Across Australia koalas are under threat from habitat destruction, traffic, disease and dog attacks.
