Destination Conservation Experience Overview
Help protect and create habitat for threatened koalas. Crohamhurst is nestled in the stunning Sunshine Coast Hinterland 100 km north of Brisbane. Its mix of open eucalypt woodlands, wetlands and subtropical rainforests harbour over 800 plant species and endemic wildlife including wallabies, kangaroos, possums, cockatoos and Australia’s most iconic species, the koala.
We will be helping to create and protect critical habitat for koalas in Crohamhurst and volunteers will get an authentic Australian experience by staying on site in the bush in a cosy “granny flat”. Join us for this off the beaten track adventure and experience the magic of the Australian bush while making a meaningful contribution to koala conservation.
