Koala Woman Says

 

Hurstville and Kogarah were opened up for vegetable farming to supply Sydney in the 1820s, so there hasn’t been many Koala food trees since then, and certainly not enough for Koalas to live on. You have to wonder what lived in the 99% of the vegetation that is now gone, not just Koalas.
