KOALA HOLD COMPONENT
Guests must be 140cm or taller and over 12 years of age to participate in a Koala hold. If the guest is not tall enough to participate, the keeper will hold the Koala and the guest can stand next to the Koala for the photo opportunity
Koalas will vary in size and therefore larger Koalas may be difficult for smaller guests to hold. As the Koalas are on a strict rotation, in alignment with Queensland legislation, it may not be possible for a smaller Koala to be used to accommodate younger guests. It is the discretion of the keeper present to determine if the participant can hold the Koala. In the event they are deemed unsuitable, the keeper will hold the Koala and the guest can stand next to the Koala for the photo opportunity
Any additional prints or digital copies can be purchases when collecting the prepaid photo
