The Gold Coast supports some of the most important koala habitat and populations in South East Queensland. These populations occur in City and State managed reserves, large privately owned parcels of rural land, and urban and peri-urban areas of the city.

Across Queensland koala numbers continue to decline as a result of habitat loss, dog attacks, road fatalities and disease. Learn about koalas, the threats facing them, our conservation efforts to save them and what you can do to help koalas on the Gold Coast.
