Creswick’s Koala Park.
In 1942, forestry students built the Koala Park by constructing a fence in a section of the forest just out of Creswick to be used as a breeding area for koalas.
They released Koalas into the enclosure to breed and boost the numbers of the local population. However, there was one big problem with their plan. Koalas can climb. They were able to climb the fence and spread into the surrounding forest.
Now there is just as much chance to see a Koala in Creswick State Forest as Creswick’s Koala’s Park. However, it is the perfect place to go for a walk and see the beautiful environment around.
The walks should take you between 45 mins to an hour and a half depending on which path you decide to take.
Creswick’s Koala Park is only 30 minutes out of Ballarat and is well worth a visit.
