    What to Expect
    Visit: Phillip Island Nature Parks - Koala Reserve, 1810 Phillip Island Tourist Road, Cowes, Phillip Island, Victoria 3922 Australia

    At the Koala Conservation Centre, you will be able to  wander the two tree top boardwalks for superb up-close koala viewing. There are two different walks at the centre:

           - Tree Top Koala Boardwalk: 800m loop – 20 minutes – easy

           - Tree Top Woodland Boardwalk: 600m loop – 20 minutes – easy

    Explore the six hectares of Australian bushland on the easily accessible trails, lookout for wallabies, echidnas and colourful native birds. Uncover the amazing lives of koalas with the interactive displays in the new visitor centre and learn more about what community groups like the Friends of Koalas or Barb Martin Bushbank are doing to help local wildlife.

    4 Park Pass Upgrade

    Book the 4 Park Pass ticket options to see some of the other attractions on Phillip Island, with guaranteed savings. This option includes entry to the Koala Conservation Centre as well as Antarctic Journey, Penguin Parade General Viewing and Churchill Island Heritage Farm.

    Important: The date you select at time of booking will be the date of your Penguin Parade Entry. You then have the flexibility to either see all attractions in one day, or alternatively, the Koala Conservation Centre, Churchill Island Heritage Farm or Antarctic Journey can be visited once within six months of the Penguin Parade date, either before or after your Penguin Parade visit.
