Well, actually you shouldn't. Koala's have weak spines, don't really like to be cuddled and can have smelly bums as well.
It's just that all that lovely fur looks so cosy.
Best to leave them curled up while their stomach acids attack the otherwise unpalatable eucalypt leaves that they exclusively feed on. Not all eucalypts mind, only a few species will do which is why they're very habitat consious.
The best option is to view them at somewhere like Blackbutt, take a snap, and leave them be.
Directions: New Lambton
