The Koala Hospital consists of a treatment room, 8 Intensive Care Units, 6 outdoor intensive care units and 33 rehabilitation yards, many of which have trees for koalas to learn to climb as part of the rehabilitation process.

During recuperation, the koalas are moved from the Intensive Care Wing into the outdoor yards to enjoy the sunshine.
