Koala Park – Creswick Regional Park

Walking tracks in Koala Park are closed due to flood damage, including a section of the Goldfields Track. The cycling route of the Goldfields Track remains open in this area.

Koala Park has a network of walking tracks. There's a good chance of spotting a koala here, although you are more likely to see one at Slaty Creek or Eaton's Dam.

In 1942, forestry students constructed a netting fence in a section of the forest to be used as a breeding area for koalas. Koalas were released in the enclosure to breed and boost the numbers of the local population. However, they were able to climb the fence and so dispersed into the surrounding forest.
