‘Hello Koalas’ is a public sculpture trail in Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia that is dedicated to celebrate and raise the awareness of the importance of protecting koalas and their habitat. There are a total of 68 hand painted koala sculptures scattered around the region. The pictures below were taken during my trip to Port Macquarie last year (September 2018). We weren’t able to visit all 68 sculptures because some of them are located further away from the town centre and only accessible by private transportation. However, we still managed to cover 38 koala sculptures using public transportation and our good old feet. Note that the collection is constantly changing and moving so there is a chance that some of the sculptures featured below would have moved elsewhere or no longer on display. You can visit the Hello Koalas website to find out more.
On this note, I inform that this blog is now retired. Thank you so much for all the wonderful memories you’ve given me. I have a new blog called, um, Dear Walden. Hope to see you there!
