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 but this area was also burnt in in the summer of 2019 – 2020. There are a few in Canyonleigh and Belanglo State Forest. Further west there may be a few around Boorowa but there are no recent records.
