A high protective plastic collar has been placed around each tree and ‘corridors’ extend around the amenities block and skirt the car park. The project is being carried out by the local Parks and Reserves Group with Port Stephens Council. Koalas prefer swamp mahogany (eucalyptus robusta) as a food tree and can, at times be found in the park high up in the foliage. Their three biggest threats come from wildfire, domestic dogs and traffic which have all increased markedly over recent times.
