Adopting a koala makes a very special and unique Christmas gift. If your adoption is a Christmas gift for someone special, simply mention it in the notes section of your order and we will email you a festive e-certificate personalised with the name of the recipient!

Your adoption will help with the rescue and treatment of sick and injured koalas in the Port Stephens region with a view to releasing them back into their own habitat where possible. It also assists in the preservation and expansion of this habitat as well as the research into disease, nutrition and habits of wild koalas and to increase public awareness of all aspects of the koala and its preservation.

Port Stephens Koalas has successfully released koalas back into the wild, leaving fewer in care. If you would like to adopt a wild koala, please click on the koala’s photo for more information or simply Add to Basket.


In return for your $50 donation you will receive a personalised e-Certificate with your name and the name and photo of the koala which you have chosen to adopt. You will also receive updates on your koala when available.

Please note: This is a symbolic adoption or ‘foster’ program. Your donation will contribute directly to the costs of the care of the koala.
