Large, dark furred Onyx arrived at Koala Gardens in the last days of 2023. Due to her size we first thought her to be a boy. She was seen on four occasions and then returned in 2024.

Onyx is particularly fond of the big mature brushbox trees in the rainforest area of Koala Gardens. Very different to the trees you usually see koalas in on the property, but it is a eucalypt and a secondary koala food tree.

Large, dark furred female koala Onyx is sitting in a fork in a tree , facing right and looking over her left shoulder to camera. her eyes are open and she looks alert

We all hope that Onyx will spend a lot more time at Koala Gardens and have our fingers crossed that she will introduce us to another Koala Gardens’ joey.

We got some fantastic news about Onyx in April 2024 – did you hear it?

Onyx appears in the Koala Gardens Happenings for 2023
