Guulabaa - Place of Koala, Cowarra State Forest

Guulabaa means ‘Place of Koala’ in local Gathang language, and this visitor experience nestled within Cowarra State Forests delivers just that.

Visitors are welcomed to the site by The Big Koala, a 2.5 metre mural koala, part of the award-winning Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail.

Those seeking a more adventurous experience can take on WildNets Adventures. Gain a new sense of gravity bouncing from room to room, discovering a variety of fun games. WildNets includes giant bouncy netted rooms, tree houses, inflatable horses, suspension bridges, ball pits, slides, pods, giant inflatables and many other exciting features for all ages and abilities, or simply sit back and watch the fun unfold. No equipment needed, and all abilities are welcome.

Coming Soon:

Koala Conservation Australia is developing the world’s first wild Koala breeding facility in partnership with Taronga Conservation Society and the Australian Museum. This facility is currently under construction.

'The Hub' central visitor area will house a café and art gallery run by Bunyah Local Aboriginal Land Council. The Hub will provide the entry point for all Guulabaa experiences, and offer visitors a place to sit and enjoy the forest environment. This facility is currently under construction.
