The Eucalypt Forest

The Eucalyptus Forest is a wet sclerophyll forest on the floor of the Tidbinbilla valley.

The forest is 17 hectares surrounded by a predator-proof fence to protect the animals and the habitat within. The forest houses several animal species including a free-ranging population of threatened Long-nosed potoroos. Here we also have breeding and free-ranging populations of koalas, which were part of Tidbinbilla’s first breeding program, which commenced in 1939.

Take a stroll along the fully accessible 700m Koala Path keeping an eye out for koalas, potoroos and wallabies or perhaps take the longer Peppermint Trail (1.8km) to be full immersed in the sights and sounds of the forest.
