Great Koala National Park

Great Koala National Park

Koalas are one of the world's most beloved species yet their populations in eastern Australia are in free fall. Around Bega in southern NSW there used to be so many koalas that pelts were exported to Europe. Now there are less than 100.

Saving Our National Icon

We urgently need to take action to ensure our kids and grandkids will be able to see wild koalas in NSW.

The National Parks Association of NSW is campaigning for the Great Koala National Park (GKNP) in the Coffs Harbour hinterland. The GKNP will protect some of eastern Australia's most important koala populations - and become a world class tourism draw card. China offers a valuable lesson: their action to protect giant panda habitats has resulted in World Heritage listing for their spectacular forests.
