Daisy Hill Regional Park

Take the kids koala spotting

Nestled in open eucalypt forest, Daisy Hill Regional Park is a popular bushland retreat for Brisbane’s residents. With luck, as you enjoy a picnic, mountain bike ride or a brisk morning walk, you may spot a koala dozing in one of the tall gum trees. If spotting a koala leaves you intrigued, visit the Daisy Hill Koala Centre to learn about their ecological importance by exploring fun interactive displays.

Did you know?

  • Koalas eat eucalypt leaves, which also provide their water, so they rarely need to drink.
  • Eucalypt leaves are so poor in nutrition that koalas sleep up to 20hrs each day and spend the rest of their time eating.
  • Baby koalas (called ‘joeys’) are the size of a jelly bean when born and live in their mother’s pouch for the first 6 months of their lives. Then they cling onto their mother’s back until they are about 1 year old.
  • Despite their cute bear-like appearance, koalas are not bears—they are marsupials (mammals with pouches).
