Koala Park Sanctuary doesn’t just have koalas, it also includes animals such as Red & Grey Kangaroos, Dingoes, Wombats, Echidnas, Emus, many Wallaby species and a large collection of Australian Native Birds. Koala Park was created in the 1920’s and officially opened in October of 1930 by the founder Noel Burnet. He became alarmed at the high numbers of koalas shot for the large export fur trade. He feared that if such harsh treatment was allowed to continue, this loveable and unique animal would disappear from the face of the earth forever. From that time on he spent his whole life fighting to protect, research and create a safe environment in which they could live and breed naturally.

New Theatre is one of the oldest continuously producing theatre companies in Australia with a proud history that is intertwined with much of Sydney's social development and Australian theatre history.
From our beginnings as a political workers' theatre, we have grown to become one of Sydney's leading independent community theatre companies. Our productions range across drama, comedy, musicals, gay theatre, family shows, political cabaret and specialised education programs.

New Theatre was born from a democratic voice and from the very beginning we’ve done things our way.
We’re not slick, we’re not refined and we don’t conform. We believe in artistic and social expression, not just escapism. When we take the stage, we’re for real.
Our doors are open to everyone – from those looking for their start, to those who never want it to end.
We’re a beacon for social movement; a hub for local enthusiasts. We’re driven by passion, not money.
We’re not interested in awards or accolades, we act out of love.
You can’t define us or second guess us. We won’t just invite you to take a seat, we invite you to take part. And we’ll always stay true to what we do. Always real. Always raw. Always New.
