About

Myths and legends of unicorns have captured human imaginations for more than 2000 years. Now one of these elusive creatures, with its single spiralling horn and rainbow colours, has taken Koala form and can be found at the Hello Koalas Gift Shop at Unit 16, 10 Bellbowrie St, Port Macquarie. Make history with Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail by celebrating the special release of our brand new sculpture Winnie the Unicorn for Port Macquarie-Hastings' Bicentenary year. The shop opens on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am-3pm. Designed and painted by Pauline Roods, with enhancements by fibreglass specialist John Belfield, and special effects by Thompsons Brushes, Winnie sprinkles a little magic dust on the area’s history as the 79th sculpture to join Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail. Discover other Hello Koalas sculptures on the Trail too which feature heritage and cultural designs that celebrate the richness and diversity of the region. These include "Con the Koala" at the Historic Courthouse, “Forest" at Port Macquarie Museum, Shelly at Seasalt Restaurant at the Marina, “Lachlan Macquarie” at Mid North Coast Maritime Museum, and the classic blue and white “Willow" at Pipeworks Cafe at Bay Park Plaza. Don’t miss the masked "Crusader Koala” helping to protect our wildlife at Sea Acres Rainforest Centre.
