Port Macquarie – Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail

Hello Koalas is a bold, ambitious and imaginative sculpture project, which celebrates one of Australia’s iconic animals – the Koala. It also supports the outstanding work of the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital – the first facility in the world solely dedicated to care and conservation of the Koala.

Above all, it is designed to generate a sense of fun and surprise for everyone who comes across one of the creatively decorated koalas resting in parkland, lazing by the beach, waiting outside the shops, or playing with school kids.

The Hello Koalas project is inspired by the highly successful Larkin With Toads public art project in Hull UK in 2010 and has been conceived by Arts and Health Australia.

The Hello Koalas project recognizes the power that FUN, INNOVATION, QUIRKINESS and CREATIVITY can have on the socio economic fabric of our community.
