Koala Encounter

Koala Encounter

Strike a pose with our famous Australian icon, the koala! Venture into the exhibit as our knowledgeable zookeepers give you a private talk about these unique pouched marsupials.

For the safety and comfort of our furry friends, guests are not permitted to touch or hold the koalas. Don’t worry though - we’ll let you get as close to the animals as possible whilst not interrupting their 20 hours of sleep a day.
