How to get up close and personal with koalas - for free

So cute! It is easy enough to interact with koalas in zoos and animal parks, but a lot harder to find them in in the wild. 

On Wild Koala Day (which is actually two days) - May 3 and May 6 - there will be free tours in the You Yangs in Victoria. 

The Koala Clancy Foundation is offering free educational tours in the You Yangs with local experts on both days - although a gold coin donation is welcome. 

Koala researcher Janine Duffy says people are fascinated to learn that there are koalas living wild in the You Yangs, and that some of them are world-famous.

“Koala Clancy, the most famous wild koala in the world, with 32,000 fans on Facebook, lives in the You Yangs with his family,” she said. 

Experienced koala researchers will be leading the tours, which start at 11.45am and 2.45pm on May 3 and May 6. Bookings are essential.
