Koalas return to Hamo
HAMILTON ISLAND’S popular koala attraction was officially ‘koalafied’ to reopen this week.
After spending some ‘koala-ty’ time with the team at Australia Zoo, it was time for Bobby, Billy, Tallow and Jeddah to return to their island home, which was severely damaged in Cyclone Debbie.The attraction’s remaining koalas and their new joeys will stay with the team at Australia Zoo until their joeys are old enough to be transported.
General Manager of Wild Life Hamilton Island Rob Hall said the return of the attraction’s koalas was an exciting time.
"The team is thrilled to have four of our koalas return home, following what has been a very challenging time for us all,” said Mr Hall.
Rosie Booth, Wildlife Director of Australia Zoo also said: "During their short stay with us, Bobby, Billy, Tallow and Jeddah have been feasting on eucalyptus and have captured the hearts of everyone who has had the pleasure of caring for them.
Once settled in, guests to Wild Life Hamilton Island can meet the furry friends through the attraction’s Koala Encounter and Koala Breakfast experience.
