First Blue Mountains koala sighting in 70 years. A koala has been seen crossing the Great Western Highway near Wentworth Falls, the first record of koalas in the upper Blue Mountains since the 1940s. The sighting is encouraging news for Dr Kellie Leigh, from the Faculty of Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney who is currently mapping koalas in and around the Blue Mountains.
