Great Koala National Park
We are proud to support the Great Koala National Park, which will give our dwindling koala population the habitat they need to thrive again.
The Great Koala National Park, is designed as the key component of a larger strategic koala reserve network for the north coast by adding 175,000ha of state forests to existing protected areas to form a 315,000ha reserve in the Coffs Harbour hinterland.
Koala numbers plummeted by a third in the 20 years between 1990 and 2010. That is only three koala generations! The Great Koala National Park will protect our national icon.
It’s not just koalas that will benefit from the Great Koala National Park! This spectacular landscape hosts lush World Heritage Gondwana Rainforests, some the world’s most diverse towering eucalypt forests – which NPA has assessed as having World Heritage values – and an array of threatened species including the Hastings River Mouse, Spotted-tailed Quoll, Powerful Owl, Sooty Owl, Greater Glider and Yellow-bellied Glider.
