There are some very colourful creatures roaming the Gold Coast and this is your chance to get up close and personal with them!


Academy award winning sculptor John Cox has teamed up with a group of talented Australian artists to create 21 wonderfully decorated Koala Sculptures that are positioned in various locations around the Gold Coast.


With each one sporting an individual design, the massive sculptures form a trail, and you are sure to find a favourite on your journey around them.


This Extremely exciting event will launch on the Gold Coast on 1st March 2013 with 21 larger than life koalas animating our parks, foreshores, shopping centres and foyers during March and April 2013. Animals with Attitude aims to celebrate the character of the Gold Coast City and to raise awareness and funds for the protection of our local koalas in a fun and engaging way.


The Cause

The event will raise awareness of the endangered nature of the koala and will raise much-needed funds to ensure the great work carried out on the 7,000 plus injured and sick animals admitted to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital annually can continue. At the end of the exhibition the sculptures will be on display for auction with all proceeds from the sale going to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation. 


This event has kindly been sponsored by businesses and councillors from all over the Gold Coast and we are extremely grateful for their support.
