Koala Conservation Centre, Cowes

3.8
#2 of 24 in Parks in Phillip Island
At the heart of Phillip Island Nature Park is Koala Conservation Centre, where you can see wild koalas in their natural habitat, accessible by treetop boardwalks open to visitors. You can also talk to the park's rangers who look after the animals and are dedicated to their protection and conservation. Visitors to the center often choose to stroll through the bushland on the Woodland Boardwalk, but you can also choose from other viewing areas, including the Nobbies Center, from which you can spot seals, dolphins, and sharks. Koalas are considered placid nocturnal animals, but at this center you can see them and a variety of native birds resting in the eucalyptus trees during the day.

  • Absolutely amazing place. Don’t have to do a lot of walking to see wildlife. Staff were more than helpful and I had a great experience. Only reason for not giving it full stars was because of the price; but well worth it for kids and tourists etc.
  • Very clean & modern building, entry with plenty of parking on gravel. There are two main boardwalks each with 5-6 Koalas in the garden. More koalas in the open park but they are harder to spot. The building also has some fun facts/interactive s about koalas and other native species. Worth the visit but I wouldn’t come again
