Liam you can see Koalas in the wild like this one at Warrumbungle National Park in NSW Australia. Not only koalas but kangaroos, wallabies and emus, Kookaburras etc. Great place if you get a chance to go.

The ranger who was caring for him brought him out for us to look at. He'd been orpaned. His Mum died of Clymidia. Very sad. But he was happy enough with his Teddy bear.
