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.
