Enjoy a day of wellness in the outdoors, connecting with nature and helping Koalas.

This is a special planting day.  

In the winter months (June-August) we plant koala trees on private properties on the Western Plains. After five to six years of growth, the time it takes to go through high school, a tree is big enough to house and feed a koala.

On this day we will be taking a walk along the Moorabool River to search for koalas and birdlife after planting. We will try, but we don’t know the koala population on the Moorabool so please don’t expect to see a koala on this day. Due to the location of the property we will be unable to visit the You Yangs koalas.

Where: 09.20am Caltex Bannockburn, Cnr Midland Hwy and Geelong Rd/Shelford-Bannockburn Rd, Bannockburn. We will then travel as a group to the location of the planting. Please do not be late - we will not wait past the pickup time, and as the planting location is private, we will not be able to give out directions.


 Book online here. -  see 23 June: Koala Tree Planting

City pickup will still occur at Holiday Inn, but no 9am meeting point at Little River (meeting point will be Bannockburn or similar).


  • Spend time outdoors connecting with mother nature

  • Socialise with like-minded people

  • Help create a new environment for koalas

  • Help to maintain Australia's natural forests

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, enjoy the relaxation of nature, hopefully see wild koalas and help create new koala habitat.
