VIDEO: Unfamiliar Surrounds - A Koala Takes a Drink From A Pond
Koalas are known to spend most of their time in the relative safety of eucalyptus trees.
The koalas of Gunnedah in New South Wales have taken to leaving their trees and drinking from artificial watering stations which have been provided by researchers at the University of Sydney.
On average a koala will sleep 18 hours a day, but can eat more than a kilo of eucalyptus leaves. Koalas generally eat during the night time.
The researchers on the ground believe that the koalas are taking the risk of leaving their trees to find water is because their leaves are drying out.
