Unique school excursions

Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary is situated on 8 hectares of natural bushland and is well-equipped to cater for your next school excursion. We are proud to offer unique, educational activities which give students the opportunity to experience Australia’s native koalas.

  • Sanctuary Story Walk

    The Sanctuary Story Walk is a 250 metre in length meandering pathway offering an immersive educational experience for all ages telling the story of koala and its habitat through artistic sculptural representations.

  • Sanctuary SKYwalk

    The Sanctuary SKYwalk and viewing platform is a 225 metre in length elevated pathway and viewing platform, offering a unique ‘tree top’ perspective into the koala’s natural habitat, a perfect photo opportunity and educational experience.

    *Sanctuary SKYwalk & viewing platform closes at 4pm.

  • Koala Hospital

    The state-of-the-art Koala Hospital includes an intensive care unit, clinic and recovery pens, looking after sick and injured koalas from the Port Stephens area. UPDATE: In 2024 a $2M expansion of the Koala Hospital is planned. During that time the hospital viewing window will not be accessible due to construction restrictions but will reopen in late 2024 / early 2025.

  • Informative guides

    All our excursions start off with an informative educational tour from one of our local guides on care, rehabilitation and what is needed for koalas to survive in the wild.
