Hold a koala – private package
No koala holds or close-up experiences until further notice - our poor koalas have the sniffles. Just like humans, they need to rest and recover so we will not be offering koala holds until further notice
Our private sessions are perfect for corporate groups or special occasions.
The package includes:
- park entry for the day
- the rare opportunity to hold a koala
- a professional photograph to mark the occasion
- two copies of your photo, both presented in a souvenir wallet
- a private session out of public waiting times
- your own personal keeper for an hour to answer all your questions
- animal food to feed some of the other animals in the park.
Bookings are essential. Health and safety conditions apply.
