The Koala Park Sanctuary (10 acres) was opened in 1930 to the public. It was first owned by Noel Brunet who set up the park as a private koala sanctuary. Today, the founding family runs the sanctuary and continue to care and study the koalas in their natural habitat. The park also has a collection of other Australian native animals and birds such as wombats, kangaroos, swamp wallabies, possums, emus and many more.
The sanctuary provide room for koalas to roam freely in the eucalyptus groves as there are hardly any fences. You can pat or hand fee the kangaroos and dingoes. The park also provide opportunities for visitors to cuddle and take pictures of koalas. You can also hear the sounds of cockatoos, which is one of Australia's native birds.
Included in the park is a kiosk and a souvenir shop. There are also BBQ and picnic areas as well as disability facilities. The park opens every day of the year from 9am to 5pm but closes on Christmas Day.

TIP: Finding these cuddly koalas in their natural habitat may be harder than you think so be on the lookout for them. Do the guided tour as it is well worth the opportunity to learn and cuddle a koala.
To get to the park by car, cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge onto the Freeway then follow the Hornsby road signs to the M2 Tollway. You can exit at the Pennat Hills Road. It is then an easy matter of following the brown and white signs to Koala Park.
