JAMES THE KOALA IS SET TO TAKE IN THE SIGHTS AT BALD HILL LOOKOUT THIS WEDNESDAY

at 12noon, Wednesday 15 April, Symbio Wildlife Park will launch their highly anticipated second instalment of their “Out and About with Animals Campaign”.

James the Koala is once again set to be the star of the shoot, nestling in his perch, enjoying the scenic views from Bald Hill Lookout over the region where Koalas were first sighted.

Bald Hill Lookout, located at the top of the escarpment, along Grand Pacific Drive, is synonymous with the Illawarra region, and is commonly referred to as the gateway to South Coast.

The reason for choosing this picturesque location, apart from being one of the most beautiful views in the world, is because in 1803 the first ever recorded European sighting of a Koala was actually in the Illawarra region, at Hat Hill (Mount Kembla), so is known as the birthplace of Koalas. What better place to show the world the beauty of Australia with our most loved Animal than from where it all began and was first sighted.

James’ recent beach shoot at Stanwell Park Beach, saw him shoot to overnight stardom, recieving coverage around the globe, thanks largely to the support Tourism Australia and Destination NSW have given the humble family owned and operated zoo.

James is just one of many successes that have come about through the 22 breeding programs the zoo is involved with. The breeding programs cover threatened, endangered and critically endangered species.

Media and the public are encouraged to come along for this once in a lifetime opportunity to be behind the scenes of Symbio’s new destination marketing campaign which is aimed to promote the region on the world stage, whilst educating the public on our much loved native fauna.

Symbio Zookeepers will be on hand presenting an educational talk on koalas whilst the shoot takes place and once complete, bystanders will have the opportunity to have their photos taken with James, with what is arguably one of the most amazing views in the world as backdrop.
