Visitors and residents can now learn about Campbelltown’s unique local koala population in the new Koalatown room at the Campbelltown Visitor Information Centre.

The room contains a wealth of educational information on the local koala colony including European and Aboriginal historical information and ways we can protect our koalas.

Visitors can also go on a ‘pick your koala’ adventure by getting information on the best places to find koala habitat and tips for when they are onsite to increase chances of seeing a koala in the wild.

“Our koalas are unique to our area and precious to locals so it’s important that we educate visitors to our region about the history and importance of the Campbelltown koalas,” Mayor George Brticevic said.

“The Visitor Information Centre attracts people from all over the world but also has a healthy number of visitors from the local area seeking to discover some of our region’s hidden gems,” Cr Brticevic said.

“This is a great opportunity to educate everyone on our local koalas and encourage people to think about threats to koalas and what you can do to make a difference like driving carefully at night and walking your dog on a leash in our bushland reserves,” he said.

“I’d encourage locals and all visitors to our area to get down to the centre and visit the Koalatown room. You can also pick up some great gifts crafted locally and discover some of the great natural experiences that Campbelltown has to offer.”

Visitors will also be able to purchase a koala-themed souvenir with all the profits going to support Campbelltown’s dedicated wildlife carers.
