The Wollondilly has been home to koalas since the Dreamtime and the story of the 'Clinging Koala and the Bunyip on the Wollondilly River.' The first recorded European sighting of a koala was in 1798 near Bargo by John Price.
Since then koalas have been greatly impacted by the loss of habitat, disease and wild fires.
The local koala populations are still present however they are very elusive and rarely seen. Wollondilly Council is running an annual monitoring program to understand where koalas occur across the shire and we need your help.
If you see a koala can you please report it to the Koala Hotline by entering the details in the form below.
