The Port Macquarie Hastings region has been populated with 65 large-scale koala sculptures manufactured in fibreglass and featuring original designs, hand painted by selected artists from across the region.
Hello Koalas is a bold, ambitious and imaginative sculpture project, which celebrates one of Australia’s iconic animals – 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 river, waiting outside the shops, or playing with children. The koala image links with the region’s high profile connection to koala habitation and conservation, including the Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie and the NSW Koala Conservation Society.
These koalas are dotted around the Port Macquarie region – you can find a map and more information through the Hello Koalas website https://www.hellokoalas.com
