Daisy Hill

On Brisbane's south-eastern outskirts is the laid-back community of Daisy Hill.

The bushland area between Daisy Hill and Redland Bay is an important koala habitat, with exactly the right conditions to support a thriving community. Fittingly, Daisy Hill is home to an educational Koala Centre.

At the Koala Centre, you can see koalas up close and learn all about these unique Australian marsupials. Wander through the Centre and learn all about the fascinating life cycle of the Koala and how they've adapted to the changing Australian environment. During the school holidays, the Centre also offers ranger-led activities. The Koala Centre is part of the Daisy Hill Conservation Park protecting an area of eucalypt forest and paperbark wetlands.

Signposted walking tracks take visitors through the scenic area with mountain-biking and horse riding allowed. The Park is home to a community of approximately 130 koalas, so if you're lucky and you stay alert, you just might see one of these cute, cuddly koalas in the wild.

The Park is also a great place for a breakfast or lunch with sheltered picnic areas provided. Units and motel-style accommodation can be found at nearby Springwood.
