The Koala is an Australian icon and is present in a number of locations not that far from Taralga. They can be found in larger tracts of remnant trees within farmland, as well as in national parks and along rivers such as the Tarlo and Abercrombie. Koalas of the Blue Mountains are among those with the highest level of genetic diversity in Australia. With populations decimated by the fur trade in the early 1900s, the resulting in-breading has taking a toll. The recent 2019 bushfires have again dramatically reduced numbers and we know the local population in the Wombeyan Caves area has gone. Koalas are slow on the road so watch out and go slow. Koalas and wombats are closely related and are both threatened due to loss of habitat.
Dianna has designed a range of local animals either real, extinct or an First Nations myth and they now are affordable garden art. Wombat, Koala, Kangaroo, Quoll, Thylacine, Drop bear, Bunyip.
Initial designs were Funded a community arts project by the Shared Spaces programme, a NSW Government initiative to Upper Lachlan Shire Council. The target was to get motorists speeding thru our local small town of Taralga to slow down and stop and look around. So sharing roads with cards and wildlife.
