Sundale’s Coolum Waters Care Centre took a walk on the wild side when residents welcomed a few furry and scaley visitors.

Wildlife HQ Sanctuary visited each of Sundale’s Sunshine Coast locations throughout September, giving residents the chance to get up close and personal with koalas, wallabies, sugar gliders and even baby alligators.
