Koala Food Trees

On average it costs $10 to plant and provide multi-year weed maintenance.

Koalas in the Tweed region prefer four tree varieties - these are called Primary food trees

  • Swamp Mahogony     (Eucalyptus robusta)

  • Tallowwood               (Eucalyptus microcorys)

  • Grey Gum                  (Eucalyptus propinqua)

  • Forest Red Gum        (Eucalyptus tereticornis)

They also eat other varieties of trees which are called Secondary food trees.  These are not their preferred variety but are also an important food source.

The preferred tree species will vary from region to region in Australia.  Koalas have adapted over time to eating the trees that are native to their geographical area.
