Spot Koalas in Lemon Tree Passage

 Spotting koalas can sometimes be difficult but there are some tricks that can help you:

  • Look up! Koalas sleep in different kinds of trees, not just Eucalypt.
  • Look down. Fresh droppings are a great sign that a koala is near.
  • Look on trees for scratches or shredded bark.
  • Look early in the morning or in the evening. These are the best times to spot them.
  • Listen! During breeding season (August-December) both males and females call out for each other.
  • Feel the temperature. Hot days will make koalas sit higher in the trees to catch the breeze, or in dense, shady trees. On cold days, they are often spotted in a fork of a tree or in a nice and sunny spot.
  • See where koalas have been spotted recently on the Port Stephens Koala Sightings Map.

We wish you the best of luck on your upcoming searches!
