Hello Koalas Festival is traditionally held over the June Long Weekend, and is the world's first festival to celebrate Australia's best loved animal, the koala.
This year the Festival has been rescheduled to the last weekend in September.
Building on the success of the Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail with 70+ koala sculptures in Port Macquarie, Hello Koalas Festival is great fun for all ages - including the second Hello Koalas Treasure Hunt, sponsored by Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.
