Koala Conservation – Lacey’s Creek, South East QLD

Destination Conservation Experience Overview

Help protect and create habitat for threatened koalas.

Lacey’s Creek is nestled in the stunning Sunshine Coast Hinterland 100km north of Brisbane. Its mix of open eucalypt woodlands, scribbly gum forests 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 on this 50 hectare property in Lacey’s Creek and volunteers will get a full authentic Australian experience by sleeping in a small “yurt” on the property. 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.
