Koalas inhabit temperate and subtropical/tropical dry forests and dry savanna habitats typically dominated by eucalyptus species.
Koalas inhabit temperate and subtropical/tropical dry forests and dry savanna habitats.
The koala occurs in forests and woodlands, typically dominated by eucalyptus species. In inland, semi-arid portions of its range, it occurs mainly in riparian woodlands. Elsewhere, distribution may be associated particularly with soil fertility and hence foliage nutrient content.
They are confined to eucalyptus forests below 600 meters.
