Port Macquarie is famous for its koala population, which is partly due to its being the home of the Koala Breeding Centre. The centre runs Koala patting sessions, where you can have your photo taken with one of these friendly animals. At the Billabong Koala Park, which is only a short 4km drive away, you can get really close to the koalas. The park has a lot of other species as well, including kangaroos, wombats, crocodiles and snakes. Billabong is one of the only places in Australia where you can see Snow Leopards, one of the most endangered big cats.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
