Koala Woman Says
Only one Koala has been reported from this electorate, and it was close to another electorate so it was likely to be a temporary visitor. There has never been any suitable natural habitat; the soils are sandy and lacking in the nutrients and water that could sustain Koala habitat. Whoever reported this Koala was indeed lucky.
