Koala Woman Says
In this electorate Koalas are clustered around Gertrude Pretty Place Park and Whites Hill Reserve, so we get sightings in the adjoining suburbs including Holland Park and even Camp Hill. There are certainly lots of sightings here but they have dropped off in the last 15 years, these patches of bush are surrounded by suburbs so there is no recruitment or dispersal. These Koalas are stuck on an island and eventually they will disappear.
