Dwindling koala populations have spurred the staff at Lillydale Farmstay in southeast Queensland to grow green thumbs – and 900 trees – to ensure our cuddly friends will always have a place to call home. A lasting home for the true Aussies

Dwindling koala populations have spurred the staff at Lillydale Farmstay in southeast Queensland to grow green thumbs – and 900 trees – to ensure our cuddly friends will always have a place to call home.

 

 

Lillydale Farmstay has been accommodating Aussies who want to experience true country hospitality and rural activities for years. But our furry friend, the koala, is the newest addition to the guest list.

The environmentally friendly Lillydale Farmstay initiated the planting of 900 koala food trees, spanning the width of the Lillydale property near Mount Barney and the southeast Queensland Scenic Rim.

With the number of furry fellas dramatically dropping in the region, the corridor of trees is aimed at ensuring a long-term flourishing koala population.

The corridor boasts seven types of eucalypts, hand-planted by Lillydale staff and watered by bucket throughout the recent harsh drought. That’s a group of people dedicated to the environment.

The project was supported by SEQ Catchments Regional NRM Group.
