The Koala Conservation Centre on Phillip Island has 6 hectares of bushland and wetlands to explore, before you even head into the treetops for a peek at the koalas. Wallabies, echidnas, galahs, lorikeets and finches were spotted on our walks.
Blue Tongue Lizards and Copperhead snakes also live here. I guess they probably saw us, but we didn't see them. Phew!
Oh, and a huge spider web. Thankfully, not its inhabitant...
Up in the tree top boardwalks there were more koalas than you could poke a gum leaf at. They were mostly in the trees this time, but on our last visit a couple of them were wandering around on the handrails.
