Koala Woman Says


This large electorate to the north of Adelaide is on the very fringes of the Koala’s distribution, and any Koala populations are south of Nuriootpa and Gawler except for the odd individual. Most sightings are between Gawler and Elizabeth, for example the suburb of Craigmore. This is primarily a rural electorate, and there aren’t many trees left.
