Big Koala for the township of Appin.

Appin is home to a thriving community of Koalas but is also now home to a unique Koala larger than life.

The Appin Community Hub has just welcomed a giant fibreglass koala into the town.  The Koala can be found on the corner of Appin Road and Market Street, near the Appin Hotel and park.

Appin Community Hub’s Lauren Eade said…

“The koala, which was delivered from South Australia and installed with the help of “a few boys eating lunch at the pub”, was designed to not only be a tourism draw but also highlight the importance of the local koala population.

The big koala was sponsored by Bright Sparks, the daycare centres operated by herself and her sister Lesley Thomas.

The Koala is to drive awareness of the Koala colonies in Appin and around their conservation.
