Hume

KOALA WOMAN SAYS

 

Bargo south of Campbelltown has the honour of the first recorded sighting of a Koala in 1798. There are still a few Koalas in the area, but most records are suspiciously next to the Hume Highway and are probably roadkills. There are a few north of Mittagong in Nattai National Park, and some more in Belanglo State Forest. There may be a few around Boorowa but there are no recent records. After the redistribution half of this electorate is now in Eden-Monaro and Riverina, but there were no recent Koala records here. However it does now include the Appin area where there are still a few.
