Coming to Greater Port Macquarie in September 2014...50 large-scale sculptures, manufactured in fibreglass and hand painted and decorated by celebrity artists, professional artists and community groups, will dot the landscape from the mountains to the sea to create an official "Hello Koalas Public Art Sculpture Trail".
The koala image links with the region’s high profile connection to koala habitation and conservation,including the Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie and the NSW Koala Conservation Society. The Hello Koalas sculpture mould has been a labour of love for Melbourne based artist, Ben Walsh. Ben has worked in close consultation with Cheyne Flanagan, Supervisor at the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. Not all koalas have the same features, and this is largely determined by geographic location. We are very proud to say that the Hello Koalas sculpture has all the features of a "true blue" Port Macquarie Hastings koala!
