Koala Woman Says

I don't know much about this electorate except that Vaucluse was developed very early on, beginning in about 1810. After about 1940 the only vegetation left was at Cooper Park, where a remnant of good Koala habitat remains. We don’t know if Koalas ever used this bush, or when they disappeared. We can just assume that if there are Koala trees then there were Koalas.
