Jirrahlinga Koala and Wildlife Sanctuary

On another note, Jirrahlinga Koala and Wildlife Sanctuary at Barwon Heads is a hidden gem in my region of Western Victoria. Jirrahlinga offers visitors a chance to get up close and personal with Australian wildlife whilst also contributing to the care and reintegration of injured native Australian animals. They also do an amazing job in supporting and educating children in many life skills. Founder Tehree Gordon has been working tirelessly since 1975 rehabilitating and protecting injured wildlife and, like many regional organisations, Jirrahlinga has been affected by COVID-19 and the lack of international tourism. Jirrahlinga is calling on Victorians to have a Vic-cation and visit the sanctuary. As Victorian restrictions are easing, there has never been a better time to visit the regions and support regional organisations and businesses.
