Who are we?

A group of active Raymond Island residents who have joined with the Paynesville Business and Tourism Association to form the Koala Island Foundation. It is the platform for us to deliver the outcomes needed for Raymond Island koalas and residents. We work with Landcare, the Koalas of Raymond Island shelter (KORI), conservationists, and tourism operators.

Raymond Island (Gunai/Kurnai language: Bunjil-baul) is a small island in the Gippsland Lakes in eastern Victoria, Australia, about 300 km (190 mi) from Melbourne.
