Fodor's Expert Review Kennett River Koala Walk

Apollo Bay Fodor's Choice

This little hamlet on the Great Ocean Road is home to a colony of wild koalas who hang, like ripe fruit, from the trees just off the highway. Located halfway between Lorne and Apollo Bay, pull in where you see Kennett River's Koala Cafe, and get the camera out. This location is also well-known for flocks of colorful king parrots, kookaburras, and wallabies. Don't try to touch or feed any of the wildlife and keep dogs in the car: koalas are more active (and therefore easier to spot) in the early morning and late afternoon.
