The Koala Hospital
The Hospital was established in 1973 by a concerned local couple who cared for injured koalas in their home. The hospital has an eight ward intensive care building plus around thirty outdoor rehabilitation enclosures. A viewing window into the hospital clinic allows visitors to see koalas being treated under anaesthesia.
The hospital is a research centre and works alongside universities, and also sits on a number of advisory panels for the government and council.
The hospital is a training organisation and conducts trainings on koala rehabilitation anywhere in Australia. The Koala Hospital sells a Koala Rehabilitation Manual which has been sold throughout Australia and internationally. They welcome veterinarians, vet nurses, researchers, zookeepers and wildlife carers for training/work experience.
The Koala Hospital runs totally on donations and does not receive government funding. They rely on funds from the public raised through their Adopt A Wild Koala Program, donations, bequests and other fundraising activities.
