Koala Woman Says
Campsie in this electorate was developed for timber and firewood in the 1820s, and an old sketch from 1883 shows Canterbury Road cutting through eucalypt woodland, about the time that Ashfield Railway Station opened and extensive subdivision occurred. Koalas were likely to have been here, but there certainly hasn’t been any since then.
