Help us save wild koalas in the You Yangs and the Western Plains
From Summer to Autumn, we maintain koala habitat in the You Yangs by removing Boneseed weeds. We allow 1.5 hours for this activity. Boneseed removal is chemical-free, doesn’t need any special equipment and is easy! Part of the day will be spent watching wild koalas in their natural habitat. You will be accompanied by two wildlife professionals who will guide you through the You Yangs national park. We will also introduce you to the koalas known from 20 years of koala research in the area.
From June to August, we plant koala trees. We allow 1.5 to 2 hours for this activity, which occurs on private properties throughout the region. If the property is far from the You Yangs, there might not be a koala walk on that day, but there will be a nature walk.
Locals: $30 adults, $20 children/student/concession (Children must be accompanied by an adult), $5 extra for transport from Melbourne city.
Tourists: $120 *
