Koala Adventure Tours was formed on March 14th, 2020, by Kangaroo Island local Lisa Thompson. Lisa has worked in the aged and disability Industry for over 10 years gaining valuable experience, knowledge and qualifications. During these years, she discovered that there is a great need for people with disabilities to have options for supported holidays.
