Macquarie

KOALA WOMAN SAYS

 

This electorate covers the Blue Mountains and wilderness areas to the north. Koalas in this electorate are found in the lower Blue Mountains at Kurrajong Heights and Bilpin with a couple of sightings also at Lawson. This electorate is a rugged wilderness with poor-quality Koala habitat so of course any sightings are made on gentler slopes with better soils, where development has already occurred.
